Moses - Glass Lampwork Bead

As I pondered this bead it came to me that the speckles are the people who followed Moses out into the desert.

The magnified handmade murrini near the bottom of the bead is Moses and the parting of the Red Sea is the wave of a new life that drove them from the life they knew toward their faith in God and new home. Hence - the beads name is "Moses". 
How Spiritual I am this morning.  Enjoy the Day...

The ends are Ink Blue and design is Multi-colored glass frit over Yellow Opal.
Below is the standing and back view of "Moses".


"Moses" was made on a 3/32 mandrel.  So the hold is approx 4 mm.

Height: 56 mm
Widest point across: 17 mm
Thickness: 4 mm
