Pierre et Gilles, David et Jonathan (Jean-Yves et Moussa), 2005

Pierre et Gilles capture two beautiful nudes in a message of peace and reconciliation. They present a Biblical story in their theatrical, fairytale style, highlighting the romantic relationship between David, a son of the Tribe of Judah, and his would-be rival Jonathan, a son of the Tribe of Benjamin. Updating the story to the present day, the two are shown as Arab and Israeli, locked in an embrace to show love over division.
