Artistic illustration of Second Temple in Jerusalem
This work was painted from a scale model, researched and designed by Professor Michael Avi-Yonah, the artist's father. Depicted is the blue-white marble sanctuary of the Temple which stood 165 feet (50 meters) tall. In the foreground, to the right, are the four towers of the Antonia Fortress. The artist renders the special aura of the dawn light illuminating the Temple. Hovering above, is a cloud formation in the shape of the Hebrew letter 'Shin', suggesting the Shechina of Divine Presence.
