After the 1950's, Ardon's work moved away from Expressionism towards a more lyrical and symbolic style seen in the present work. The depth, richness and delicate balance of the colors in this painting are typical of his work of this period. He continued to draw on Jewish history and was especially concerned with Jerusalem and the Old Testament. "With his brush and colors Ardon exhalts all creation... Whether he paints leaf, stone, sun, moon, wind, rain, dawn, or twilight, the image is never really a depiction of outer reality but a revelation of its essence. In bringing forms to life on the canvas, Ardon adds a new dimension to our perception of the universe, endowing it with fresh meaning." (Michèle Vishny, Mordechai Ardon, New York, p. 49)
