Iterations of the nocturnal scene from the book of Genesis, in which Jacob wrestles an angel on his way to Canaan, has been a commonly represented allegory in the history of art. In the present work, Lipchitz modernizes previous interpretations by the likes of Eugène Delacroix and Gustave Moreau (see fig. 1).
