Pictures of life in Jerusalem and the Jerusalem Hills. And since August 2013 also a look at the northern Negev, my new home.
This looks like Roman art to me, in its treatment of subject matter. Why are the bodies so squat? That's not Roman. Curious wall art you captured!
They do a bit, don't they. I like them.
I love those - so much more interesting than the plain ones.(Are you getting blasted by the windstorm we are up there? I wouldn't be surprised if I woke up in Oz the way it's blowing out there...)
hello Beautiful Dina.It does seem to be a beautiful relief.Nice art can happen in the commonest places.I felt right off intuitively, that it was a biblical scene and when I looked closer I could see the angel's wing so maybe it is.shalom
They seemed based on old Roman coffins.
Oh my those would be fun to make. SOmebody will surely make a lot of money selling them.
They have a familiar aspect...
They are definitely Roman sarcophagi; the cupid is very often the symbol of the soul in such art, and very often ecorates the sarcophagus of a child. For fuller accounts see Koortbojian, Michael. Myth, Meaning, and Memory on Roman Sarcophagi. Berkeley: University of California Press, 1995.
Perhaps they are Roman sculptures, but I'm not sure. However they are curious compositions.
Maybe Roman, do I see Angels?Anyway they are funny planters.
They do look great, I would like some of them!
No idea but it sure is quite interesting and pretty.
