    Superb info and thoughts. Some think there was a translation error in Exodus 34:29. The error by Saint Jerome led to depictions of a demon-horned looking Moses.

    Hi there Suzette! Thank you so much for the congrats. It was a labor of love for all concerned but turned very well we think. I'm particularly happy of the fact 70% of the sales will go to the K-9 for wounded warriors non-profit - thank you Suzette!
