Tales of Triumph from the Old Testament: Victorious Stories of the Bible, by Yaacov Heller
Stories bring us together and allow us to create connections. The stories encompassed in this display of four silver sculptures by Yaacov Heller are from the Old Testament of the Bible, and share messages of victory, triumph, and the possibility of overcoming great odds.
These four sculptures, portraying stories of great victory and triumph, are just a small selection of all of the pieces by Heller in DePauw University’s collection at Peeler Art Center. In 1998, a donor named Beverly McDermond generously loaned fourteen of Heller’s silver sculptures to DePauw in loving memory of her husband, Robert C. McDermond, a 1931 DePauw alumnus.
