This is the unique original Gouache painting by Patrick Nicolle.

Joseph, son of Jacob and Rachel, lived in the land of Canaan with ten half-brothers, one full brother, and at least one half-sister. He was Rachel's firstborn and Jacob's eleventh son. Of all the sons, Joseph was preferred by his father, and this is represented by a "long coat of many colors". When Joseph was seventeen years old he had two dreams that made his brothers plot his demise.

In the first dream, Joseph and his brothers gathered bundles of grain, of which those his brothers gathered, bowed to his own.

In the second dream, the sun (father), the moon (mother), and eleven stars (brothers) bowed to Joseph himself. These dreams, implying his supremacy, angered his brothers. (Genesis 37:1-11).

Originally published in Bible Story, 1964 issue yet to be determined.
