Making a mandala deep in the quarry


As explained in the previous post, one of Friday's Jane's Walk walks went down into Beer Sheva's ancient quarry. 
Guide Shir had us play some nature games, e.g. each of us had to find something natural that interested him/her and collect eight examples of it.

A botany student came up with a flower in different stages of development.

The geology student found a flint that had been knapped thousands of years ago.

Always attracted to spirals, I brought dry snail shells.

And then we arranged them on the earth into a mandala!
Click on the photo to see it well.

Long live this ancient quarry and long live these nice young people who love the earth and our Land!

I love the flint! That's great. Here in The Netherlands we sometimes find flint arrowheads. That's a rarity!
