Moses, in Hebrew, is Moshe

Moses, in Hebrew, is Moshe. Moshe is spelled MEM (M), SHIN (Sh) and HEY (H). When Pharoh's daughter finds Moses in the river, "[S]he named him Moses, saying, 'I drew him out of the water.'" Gen. 2:10. Hashamayim is also a visual representation of Moses being drawn out of the water. Here is the picture, notice the arm extending into the water and drawing Moses out.

 Genesis 1:1 in the ancient Hebrew pictographs.
While I believe the story of Moses is represented in hashamayim in other ways, the other most notable is Moses' dramatic parting of the Red Sea. Quickly, let us look at Exodus 14:21-22, "Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the LORD drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided, and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left."
Though it might not have been necessary, I have made some alterations to the graphic representation for visual effect. Here is Moses stretching out his hand and the waters being divided.
