In celebration of Purim, The Laurie M. Tisch Gallery is pleased to exhibit the stunning, large-scale illuminated Scroll of Esther created by the well-known Israeli painter Avner Moriah. The ancient story of Esther is told by mixing Persian, Indian, and Islamic art miniature style paintings with Italian Renaissance styling and contemporary humor, politics and sensibilities.

Ganze Megillah (Yiddish for "The Whole Story") features 18 framed illuminated manuscripts on parchment, measuring over 54 feet and containing over one million brushstrokes.
