This beautiful print, signed
by the artist, was created and printed in Jerusalem. The painting is a stained-glass
mosaic vitrage of the sites and symbols of Jerusalem. In the center you'll see
the "Gate of Mercy" (Golden Gate) from which the Messiah will enter
the city. We also see Muslim minarets and remnants of the walls surrounding
the Old City. In the next arch out, we see the fruit of the land of Israel,
the 7 species, pomegranate, vines and wheat. On the outermost section we see
the Menorah, Star of David, Torah scroll, some musical instruments mentioned
in Psalms and also a guitar and saxophone. And most important, the artist (who
lives in Jerusalem), knows this isn't just a city of tourists and site-seeing,
actual people (like me!) live here. So, in the center of the painting you'll
see traditional Jerusalem homes.
This is a beautiful gift
for any home or office.Measures:
