The wall erected around the Second Jewish Temple in Jerusalem in 19 BCE was almost entirely destroyed with the exception of a small section on the western side, the Western Wall. This last remaining vestige is holy to the Jews because of its link to the sacred Temple Mount. The Wall majestically towers over the men and women who pray there day and night all year round. I tried to bring this feeling to life in my quilt.
This quilted wall art landscape was done previously as part of a set of six for someone who hung the quilts along her spiral staircase! It is available separately or in a set and can be customized in size. The other pieces from the set shown below are available as well.
