Artist's Statement

DAVID & JONATHAN (1000 bce)

After killing the Philistine giant, Goliath, the young hero David was brought before Saul, the first king of Israel. Saul’s eldest son Jonathan instantly fell in love with the handsome young warrior, and stripped off his own robe and armor and placed them upon David. When Jonathan was killed by the Philistines on Mt. Gilboa, David mourned and said: “greatly beloved were you to me; your love to me was wonderful, passing the love of women”. The story of David and Jonathan is told in the Old Testament of the Bible, in books 1 and 2 Samuel.
