The Sacrifice of Isaac

Hava Mehutan   -   Offering

A headed figure lies on an altar of logs, while the head of another figure stands to the side.. The "human" figures look like and are made from the same material as the altar, thus blurring the boundaries between the altar, the sacrificer and the victim.
