Marc Chagall: Binding of Isaac - The Akiba

Here is thy footstool and there rest thy feet
where live the poorest,
and lowliest,
and lost.

Marc Chagall

The Binding

The Aqebah is a strong image of deliverance. 
Chagall's subtle inclusion of the crucifixion over-shadowing Abraham provides an interesting insight for a hill known as Moriah that latter finds recognition in Golgotha.
