Exodus 32:
1 And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
2 And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me.
3 And all the

Some stills from the Golden Calf scene

Still working on it, but I like how it’s coming out. Based on Exodus 32. These are all things Hebrews should NOT be doing! But of course it’s the most beautiful chapter in the film.

Amos Yee is one of the greatest living defiers of classification

You know you’re doing something right when Amos Yee gives you a shout-out (02:34) in the midst of a passionate, funny, enlightening rant. Praise from Caesar is praise indeed.

Hathor the Golden Calf

I took some liberties in this design. “Why all the boobies?” you may ask. Once upon a time, boobies were an object of respect, not shame and ridicule. My goddesses have big, bare breasts to represent that mindset. Not that I think boobies should be worshipped; I’m not into biological fertility, and I’m not a “breast (wo)man”. Having breasts myself, I can say they’re kind of a pain in the ass (nor am I an “ass (wo)man”). But there’s so much shame around female breasts these days, I make ’em big and plentiful on deities to remind myself, and hopefully you, that the shame, discomfort, and anger they provoke is about patriarchy, not women’s

Faster Wadjet

I had to re-time my Wadjet – she used to be 48 frames long, now she’s a svelte 36. Here’s an earlier version. She will appear in Exodus 32 along with all the other goddesses, accompanying the Golden Calf, who is Hathor.

Exodus 16-19: A Stiff-Necked People

Music: “Reach Out I’ll Be There” by the Four Tops
Animation, design, direction, everything else: Nina Paley

Exodus 16: 1 And they took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came unto the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departing out of the land of Egypt.

Exhausted Hebrews wander the desert, led by MOses, Aharon, and a Pillar of Fire

2 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness:

Hebrews murmur against Moses

3 And the children of Israel said unto them, Would to God we

Asherah-rah-rah

My Asherah is loosely based on these:

Because mine rotates, the design is super simple with hardly any detail. Here’s another version that looks slightly less like the real Ashera figures, but is a cleaner design (due to longer hair):
