The title of this painting "Parting of the Seas" alludes to the biblical narrative of the escape of the Israelites, led by Moses, from the pursuing Egyptians in the Book of Exodus 13:17-14:29. However Vanni suggests a more cosmic approach transcending any specific religious implication. The starkness of the blue and red waves creates a powerful and interesting contrast with the luminous explosion of the yellow background.
