Half of our father Abraham is in the light, half is in shadow (for Shadow Shot Sunday).
But the names of both his sons are in bright sun: Isaac on his right hand and Ishmael on his left.
The artist, Betty Moller, writes that her "Abraham" is based on Genesis 17:9 --
"Then God said to Abraham, 'As for you, you must keep my covenant, you and your descendants after you throughout their generations.' "
Today many consider Ishmael to be the father of the Arab people.
I like to think that there is a parallel inside the building, behind the sculpture, of two young workers talking, one a Jew and one an Arab.
