In 1963 he commissioned these illustrations of the Bible.

And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves: They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These by the gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
