This piece of stained glass entitled Bemidbar was created for a Bar Mitzvah. It depicts the hundreds of thousands of people crossing the desert of Egypt to the Promised Land. The twelve tribes, each maintaining its own tribal color, were devided into four groups of three tribes each, surrounding the tribe of Levi who provided a buffer for the tabernacle. The artist is Indie Luria Goldwaser is a graduate of SUNY Buffalo, majoring in Psychology and Art. She continued her studies at Pratt Institute, receiving a Masters Degree in Art Therapy. Teaching Creative Problem Solving in the industrial setting led to her own challenging and artistic struggles. She began dabbling in stained glass one summer in the mid 70's, and has never put it down since. I am certainly glad she has not.
