This is one of the about 30 works in different sizes, which were exhibited around Europe in 1977-1978, under the title “religious art”. We see in it a tree, which looks like a prophet, holding in its arms an incomplete Magen David, which hints to the broken tables of the covenant. In the background we see a calf head- hinting to the Golden Calf.
