The classroom topic for March is the Ten Commandments and this work by Philippe de Champaigne (1648 AD) would be a perfect piece for classroom prayer tables.
The interesting thing about this piece is that everything is so clear; almost photograph-like! Moses looks like someone you’d meet in real life and the tablet is clear enough to easily read. That sends the message that reading/knowing the Commandments is every bit as valuable as the beauty of the art itself.
