Above is an illustration of Moses and the Ten Commandments by Barbara Goshu. If you like it you can check out more of her icon-influenced Christian art at her website.

Here’s her bio: “Barbara Goshu is a Polish national, educated in the medieval city of Krakow. She studied graphic arts, painting and sculpture at Krakow University′s Academy of Fine Arts, one of Europe′s oldest and most prestigious institutes of higher learning. During her studies, Barbara was drawn to the mystery of Russian, Byzantine and Greek iconography. When she arrived to Ethiopia with her husband, she was particularly taken with the colorful stories of Ethiopia, the land of the queen of Sheba. Barbara responded passionately to the richness of Ethiopian civilization, immersing herself in the study of its art, culture and history. Once again the icon ­ this time in its Ethiopian form ­ fascinated her and she creates icons on wood, and paints magnificent paintings on rock as an outlet for her talent and as a method of understanding her new home.”
