Moses & Netanyahu
Moses in the U.S. House of Representatives - Anav Silverman
Near the end of his address to Congress, Prime Minister Netanyahu pointed to the image of Moses overlooking the lawmakers in the House of Representatives chamber.
The portrait, designed by artist Jean de Marco, is one of 23 marble reliefs that depict historical figures noted for establishing the principles that underlie American law, according to the Architect of the Capitol.
On either side of Moses are 11 profiles that face left and eleven which face right, so that all look toward Moses in the center.
