Nineteen Diaspora Paintings: Jacob and Esau

Artist name: Rand Archie

Jacob, in green, is mixing something in a large vat. Esau, dressed in red and looking tired, leans on the vat and smokes a cigarette. Below appears the verse from Genesis 25:
“Esau said to Jacob, give me some of that red stuff, I’m starving. This is how Esau got his name, Edom (red)”
