Lucy D'Souza lives in Bangalore, India. Her painting of Miriam dancing at the river is one of a series of "Biblical Women" reproduced as the 1990 Lenten veil of Mirsreor, Germany. MIriam, the prophetess and the sister of Moses and Aaron, celebrated the freedom of her people from their Egyptian oppressors. Her dance was supported by other women who joined in her act of celebration.

The artist's illustration of the story adds that "water is a predominant element in the scene reminding us also of the Physical hardship facing women in India as they have to walk many miles for a pot of water."
