Beit Alpha 2008

The Pisces sign in artist Judith Weinshall Liberman’s work titled: THE ZODIAC SERIES I, looks like the one which appears in the 6th century mosaic floor wheel of the zodiac excavated at the synagogue in Beit Alpha, Israel. In the original Beit Alpha mosaic floor wheel one had to bend his head in order to see the details (at least as it was captured by photography). I like Judith’s way of facilitating the viewing of the different zodiac signs, as well as her division of the signs, according to their color, to the four seasons. Pisces, as a Water Sign has a blue background.
