Moshe Castel (1909-1992) often used Judaic symbolism in his artworks. He became famous for his work using basalt found in the black rock, which is indigenous to several areas of Israel.

Many of his paintings are characterized by his creation of what appears to be an ancient form of writing. These symbols are painted in relief utilizing the black rock material. The strong reds, greens and blacks are indicative of his paintings.

Castel is one of the most prominent Israeli artists, born in Jerusalem, descendant of a Sepharadic family who came to Israel during the days of the Spanish Expulsion. Studied art at Bezalel School of Arts and later in Paris where he became part of a circle of artists that included Picasso, Matisse, Sutin and Chagall. His works adorn the Israeli Presidential Mansion and the Knesset (Israeli Parliament) in Jerusalem and are exhibited in some of the most important museums around the world.
