This portrait of Martin Luther King is created using the original letters from the Bible texts of the Exodus story wherein Moses tells Pharaoh to let the Hebrew people leave Egypt, the land of their slavery so they can head towards their promised land. I was set to use the entire story, which spans from Exodus chapters 6 through 12. However, by the time I reached the end of chapter 8 the portrait was basically completed, except for some extra letters of yud-hey-vav-heys, which is the unspoken mane of The Divine. Those letters I made sure to use in the eyes, which saw a Divine dream; the ear, which heard a Divine call, and the mouth, which preached from the Bible a message for all people.
Like Moses, Martin Luther King Jr. had a bigger dream than the one that prevailed in his day. It was a dream for more people that his own, and it inspired many people beyond his own, and continues to inspire and spread to this day. After the portrait, I have included a few of my favorite quotes from the good reverend, of blessed memory.
The image below is of Martin Luther King Jr. Scripture Portrait. I worked to create it with “painstaking excellence”, as the Reverend Doctor’s quote below applies to artists also.

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’
“The time is always right to do what is right.”
“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.”
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
“A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.”
“All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.”
