Chagall reflections

In this forbidden photo you can see 4 of Chagall's 12 stained glass windows in the synagogue of Hadassah medical center.
The Holy Ark and the reading table for the Torah scroll are covered by a two-piece soft sculpture created by Aviva Green.
The detail is better seen in the artist's slideshow, and here she explains about the creative process.
.
The glass protecting the reading table gave nice reflections of the windows.
.
I knew I just had to get them for James' Weekend Reflections so I shot fast, just before the shout of "No photographs!" rang out.

Sometimes it's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission....
I especially like the top "spycam" photo!
Cheerio, Dina!
