1780s 1787 Antlers Bankes Biblical Deer Patriarch Running Stag Testament Naphtali


EDITORS COMMENTS
This image is taken from Plate X of the Thomas Bankes Bible, published in 1787. The scene depicts the Old Testament patriarch Naphtali, one of the twelve tribes of Israel, in a moment of contemplation amidst the natural beauty of his namesake region. Naphtali, which means 'wrestling with God,' is shown in a serene setting, surrounded by lush vegetation and a majestic stag, its antlers adorned with ivy. The patriarch's flowing robes and peaceful expression convey a sense of tranquility and connection to the land. The Thomas Bankes Bible, created in the late 18th century, is a testament to the artistic and religious sensibilities of the time. The intricately detailed engraving is a prime example of the exquisite craftsmanship and attention to detail that characterized the era's biblical illustrations. The use of natural elements, such as the stag and foliage, serves to emphasize the harmony between man and nature, a common theme in biblical art of the period. Naphtali's story is found in the Book of Genesis, where he is the sixth son of Jacob and the fifth of the twelve tribes of Israel. The biblical account describes him as having a large family and living in the region of Naphtali, which is situated between the Sea of Galilee and the Mediterranean Sea. This enchanting image offers a glimpse into the rich history and spirituality of the Old Testament, providing a visual connection to the stories and characters that have shaped the world's religious traditions.
