This old bone box at the Bible Lands Museum touched my heart.
The deceased couple is depicted on the lid of the ossuary.
The panels show winged genii leading the dead away.
(Click on the photo and then again on the enlarged photo to see it up close.)
This is an Etruscan ossuary from Etruria, central Italy, dated 400-300 B.C.E.
This is the Bible Lands Museum Jerusalem with a modern statue of the tower of Babel in front.
It is located on "museum row," across the street from the Israel Museum and just up the hill from the science museum.
Just to the BLMJ's left I was excited to see the progress of the National Campus for the Archaeology of Israel.
I posted about it two years ago when they were just putting up the sign about its future construction.
I hope the folks at Our World Tuesday enjoy this tour and that the taphophiles at Taphophile Tragics appreciate the bone box.
