Bartolo di Fredi, Crossing the Red Sea

1356
Fresco
Collegiate Church of San Gemignano, Italy

The man in the brown tunic in the very center of the panel can only be Moses, because of the rod and the split beard, but he lacks any indication of the horns or rays that portraits customarily place on his head in reference to Exodus 34:30.

It is possible that the lucky fishermen in the background refer to the fishermen of the New Testament whom Jesus called to be "fishers of men" (Matthew 4:19, Mark 1:17).
