tobias

Description

then it was that tobias took out the fish's gall and rubbed it on his father's eyes how they praised god, he and his wife and all who knew them!
This horizontal composition is divided into two sections; and each section is again divided in half. The copy “Then it was that Tobias took out the fish’s gall, and rubbed it on his father’s eyes & how they praised God, he and his wife and all who knew them!” is printed over the transparent white cloud-like shape filling the first ¼ of the composition on the far right. Two more transparent cloud-like shapes float over a multi-colored background filled with predominately warm colors (orange, red, yellow, red-violet). A figure with outstretched arms fills the balance of the space on the right side of the composition. The other half of the composition has a multi-colored background with similar warm colors and an overlay of darker colors defining a few figures. A fish-shape can be seen in the lower portion on the composition with two figures looking on. On the far left is another figure standing with outstretched arms overhead.
