  2. They’re a visual interpretation of Exodus 34:29-35. Sometime during the Medieval Era, artists started using those “horns” of light for Moses because the halo (as a symbol of holiness) was reserved for Jesus, angels and the Saints. Unfortunately, they tended to be rendered as actual horns on *statues* of Moses and were sometimes used to add credence to both the “blood libel” and “Jews-are-the-spawn-of-Satan” argument and the persecution of Jews during that era.
