THE WHIMSICAL HAGGADAH (VI)
– Mega Interlude: The Telling ("The Four Children")
As one of the most well-known and beloved sections in the entire Haggadah, I think that “The Four Children” deserves a (sub)series of its own. I tried to make the portraits as different as the four ways of teaching and learning. All are, however, connected in the color lilac. In the field of color symbolism, each color represents and evokes an array of emotions, the last one listed being the opposite of the first.
(Rather than showing the Maggid (The Telling) tapestries in the order of the Haggadah, I have woven and organized them in five [sub]series according to the various types of text that they represent. Each (sub)series has a distinct expression that makes it different from all the other (sub)series of the Maggid.)
