The mouflon, or wild sheep, is thought to be the ancestor of modern domestic sheep. Today, they inhabit various areas around the Middle East and the Caucasus.
The ram is symbolic in many cultures. In Judaism, it represents acceptance. Animal sacrifice was common in biblical times and one story is particularly well-known. The Hebrew Bible describes how Abraham set out to sacrifice his son, Isaac, only to be told at the last minute to sacrifice a ram instead.
The ram did not volunteer to be sacrificied, just as we do not volunteer to go through certain life experiences. The ram teaches us that acceptance is the most powerful antidote to the pain that arises from experiences that we have no choice other than to endure.
'Mouflon' was created using archival, lightfast acrylic ink, and 24 karat gold leaf, on museum quality, cradled wooden panel.
