Perhaps I live in a small world, naturally influenced by the culture of Central Europe where I was born, educated and where I developed my knowledge and skills. And no experience from traveling could change rooted paradigms such as the Ten Commandments are known to everyone in the world, regardless of religion. At least they exist and that it was God’s message to people, a sort of moral code.
Was it completely stupid? It looks like it.
Currently I’m discovering nooks of deviant art. Everyone knows and I’m wondering. Hey, contest? I want to participate! I have never experienced that!
So I met the Magic contest and it was the topic why I decided to submit one of my works. I chose among several favorites and the winner was the picture To be connected – full colored drawing with Hebrew manuscript of Ten Commandments. First, I like the picture so much that I have it as wallpaper. And second, I consider giving the commandments to Moses to be a great magic. Naturally it must be magic as it came from God.
Satisfied with the idea, I submitted for the contest. I didn’t expect to win the prize because I have healthy eyes and I see a tremendous amount of talent and experience of other artists. But also I didn’t expect the content could be questioned.
Today I’ve been asked for precise translation of the Hebrew manuscript to English because not everyone knows the Ten Commandments.
As if the translation could clear the overall message. Or as if any words could clear magic which was the topic of contest.
This little intermezzo turned me back to the ground. I found the translation on internet and fed a hungry dog. Additionally, I found the second version of my Ten Commandments drawing as above. Should I submit it for the contest as well? Of course with full translation! 😋
Back in an optimistic mood,

I love both versions, and I say why not submit the second one too! You have nothing to lose. (Unless there are rules that disallow multiple entries from a contestant ;))

Thanks for encouraging, Anita! I haven’t yet decided, but you are right – there is nothing to lose. Just my gallery’s look becomes more serious. On the other hand I also have two faces joyful and serious. OK, decided!
