The Leopard


Oil on canvas (original dimensions: 30”x40”)

This painting is based on a photograph taken by my father-in-law in Botswana. This Leopard has just finished dragging an impala all the way up into this tree away from others so it can be eaten at his leisure. Satisfied with his meal, he now lays back and is relaxed. The biblical verse is,

“יהודה בן תימא אומר הוי עז כנמר וקל כנשר ורץ כצבי וגיבור כארי לעשות רצון אביך שבשמים”

“Yehuda ben Teima said to be bold as a leopard, light as an eagle, swift as a deer and mighty as a lion to do the will of your Father in heaven.” (Ethics of our Fathers 5:20)
