Jacob's Ladder by William Blake
William Blake : Jacob's Ladder, c.1799-1807. Pen and grey ink and watercolour.
'Jacob's Ladder (Hebrew: סולם יעקב Sulam Yaakov) is a ladder leading to heaven that was featured in a dream the biblical Patriarch Jacob had during his flight from his brother Esau in the Book of Genesis.
'The significance of the dream has been debated, but most interpretations agree that it identified Jacob with the obligations and inheritance of the Jewish people chosen by God, as understood in Abrahamic religions.'
