Moses and Envoys from Canaan – Lanfranco

 Moses, especially marked by the horns of light on his head, receives news from the scouts returning from Canaan, who describe how strong the cities are there. The messengers also bring some fine grapes from the enemy territory, demonstrating how fertile the land is. Hearing of the difficulty of invasion, the Jews begin to murmur, as seen in the background of the image. Artwork by G. Lanfranco
