"Our feet have been standing within your gates, O Jersalem!" Psalms 122:2
This bookmark is beautifully illustrated with David Roberts' painting titled 'Jerusalem from the North'. This view is looking towards Jerusalem on the road from Ramallah. David's Tower and the Dome of the Rock can be seen in the distance as they make their way over the hills outisde Jerusalem.
David Roberts traveled from Egypt across the Suez to Mount Sinai, Petra, Jerusalem, and the Galilee producing a large collection of drawings and watercolors of all the major holy sites. These works formed the basis of the tinted lithographs published soon after his return to England, a collection which enjoyed immense popularity in England and the United States. It provided the public the first glimpse of the biblical landscape and monuments known only by name. Today Roberts' works are still enjoyed by those who appreciate the beauty of the Holy Land.
