THE CLOAK

In the last Biblical tale about prophet Elijah, he assigns his cloak a central role: First, he rolls it and uses it to split a river, and then, while taking off in a fiery chariot, he drops it for his successor. Thus the cloak transforms from a common article of clothing into a tool in the hands of a miracle worker, and a symbol of authority and opportunity.


I recreate the worn-out cloak as it takes off, crushes, and moves between the physical and the abstract, mundane and Divine.
