THE 9TH COMMANDMENT
"YoU shAll noT
bEar faLse wiTneSs
aGainSt yoUr neiGhboUr." If you currently visit the National Gallery of Victoria you will see in the European section an amazing picture of Moses bringing down from the mountain, the tablets of the 10 Commandments, a painting by John Rogers Herbert.
This massive, magnificent painting is the most expensive piece of artwork in the Gallery. The female attendant informed me it was worth more than Picasso's "Weeping Woman".
