David's Tower Jerusalem David Roberts Bookmark
Engaging image printed on durable PVC.
"Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem: May they prosper who love you..." Psalms 122:6
This bookmark is beautifully illustrated with David Roberts' painting titled 'Jerusalem and the Tower of David'. The Tower of David is an ancient citadel located in the Old City of Jerusalem by the Jaffa Gate.
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.
