Angels

.

This tile art (which joins the Monday Mural meme) is on the outer wall of a government agency in Beer Sheva.
If you click to enlarge the photo, you might recognize the story from Genesis 18.
"Three men" come to visit Abraham and Sarah in their tent at the Oaks of Mamre, but they turn out to be angels in disguise.

On the wall, below the company name,  it says Machoz Hadarom, meaning the Southern District, i.e. the Negev.
With the hundreds of rockets falling here in the south now,  I'm wondering if the Iron Dome  might just  be sort of a modern version of protecting angels in the sky . . . .

(See an earlier post telling how the medieval Russian icon "The Hospitality of Abraham" gradually became the icon "Holy Trinity.")

Unusual design, but I like it.

That is a beautiful piece of art. I think the angels, and Iron Dome, are very busy right now in your part of the world. Sending prayers your way for peace as always.

I don't know why, but I would trust Iron Dome much more than any angel...

I'm sending my angel to help out too. PEACE.

A lovely composition even without the incised lines.
