Lithograph printed on Japon paper, not signed and not numbered. The lithograph is cataloged number 721 in 'Chagall-The Lithographs' by D.A.P.Due to the deeply religious nature of some of Chagall's work, it could be assumed that the king with the harp depicted here is a representation of King David of the Old Testament. King David was attributed with the creation of many of the psalms contained within the book of psalms. Seventy-three of the 150 psalms in the Bible are attributed to King David, one of the Dead Sea Scrolls (11QPsa) attributes 3600 tehilim (songs of praise) plus other compositions to him. Nevertheless, there is no hard evidence for Davidic authorship of any of them.The psalms use the poetic device of parallelism which develops an idea by the usage of repetition, synonyms, and opposites.
