Moses is finally leading the Hebrews out of Egypt in a peaceful exodus.
Was Gibson touched by the gentle compassion of Moses which is captured so well in this carving? Gibson was not a harsh administrator; every Friday his backdoor was open for anyone in need to call.
The West Side
Moses patiently receives the cries of the thirsty Hebrews as they struggle with life in the wilderness.
In a similar way, Gibson and others set up a Town Mission to see to the needs of the many slum-dwellers of Saffron Walden.
