The L-rd spoke to Moses saying: "Send out for yourself men who will scout the Land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel..." (Numbers 13:1-2)

Painted on two canvases, this abstract rendition of the spies going out to scout the "good land" captures the depth and breadth of the land as well as the movement and progression of their reconnaissance mission.

Framed on either side by two robust red trees, the painting portrays the fruity, fertile feeling of the land, as well as a darker, more sinister side. This reflects the negative assessment of the spies who describe the land which "flows with milk and honey" as a land which eats its inhabitants. They describe the land as having an overpowering atmosphere with thick and heavy fruits and the inhabitants as being high and mighty as they discourage the people from conquering the land.

Perhaps the two trees represent Joshua and Caleb who stood strong in their faith and positive in their assessments of the land, encouraging the people to forge forward.
