Swords into ploughshares, in mirror image

On an upper floor of Israel's National Library there was a reflection just waiting to be captured for James' Weekend Reflections!

The huge stained glass window caused the reflection.
Mordechai Ardon made this triptych in the early 1980s, inspired by the prophetic vision of peace in Isaiah 2:2-4.
More details in an earlier post.
Shabbat shalom, Sabbath peace, to all.

I have been lurking for some time Dina, and I have to tell you--you have fostered in me a passion to visit Israel when before it was not even on my list. Thank you. And oh yes--I will be visiting that absolutely beautiful library.

Rob and Mandy said...

Quite wonderful. Good shabbes, Dina.

I'll post another version of Isaiah next week...
Shabbat Shalom, Dina!

Dina said...

Shalom Elena, glad to see you here with the blog friends and I hope we can meet when you come to Israel.
The library has guided tours every Friday. Blogging makes me want to register for the next one.
Your comment warms my heart. :)

Rob and Mandy, gut Shabbes to you too.

VP, I'm so curious what your Isaiah will be.
