Kever Rachel, Oil Painting
Located in Bethlehem, Rachel’s Tomb is significant because it lies in the middle of nowhere. Rachel had a vision of the destruction of the Holy Temple and the exile of the Jews. She knew that she would be a source of comfort to them as they traveled past her tomb, so she gave up her place next to Jacob in the family plot to be there for her children.
SEMI ORIGINAL GICLÉE is a reproduction on mounted and stretched canvas with wrapped edges. The entire canvas is then painted over, recreating the look of an original painting with brush strokes and texture. Much time and effort goes into creating each giclée to make it into a masterpiece. It can either be hung as is, or framed.
Please allow 4-5 weeks production time for a Semi Original Giclée.
Any sizes LARGER than 20×60 will ship taken off the stretcher bar and rolled in a tube.
About This Painting
Rachel is a source of comfort for all Jews. Her sacrifices and motherly nature draw people to her grave to pray for security and love. Women who struggle to bear children also turn to Rachel for hope, as she waited for many years before conceiving a child. Rachel is the Jewish mother who sacrificed her own happiness for her sister and her children.
She gave up her place next to Jacob in life and death for the benefit of everyone else. With her ability to foresee the future, Rachel knew that her ancestors would travel on the road past her grave and pray there. Hearing her children’s pleas, she begged God to help them. Because of her sacrifices, God showed mercy on her children even though they had sinned. In this painting by Nechama Fine Art, you can experience the vision of Rachel, guiding her children throughout the ages.
