Michelle gives us the following challenge:When someone says “art,” they often use it as shorthand for “paintings and sculptures.” Art is everywhere, though: in nature, in architecture, in literature, and more. It’s anywhere we see beauty and meaning. This week, share a photo of something that’s art to you. It could be some actual “art,” like a painting by your grandmother or the misshapen but perfect clay sculpture your child brought home from kindergarden, or something most people wouldn’t consider beautiful at all, but that has meaning to you. The important thing is that it’s art in your eyes.”
So, this week I decided to go with artistic depictions of menorahs, all from Israel. For other entries click here.
Menorah mosaic at Katzrin Park – Ancient Talmudic Village & Synagogue.
This menorah is from the remains of an ancient synagogue, dating back to about 100 years after Jesus, at Katzrin Park.
The menorah, of course, is the symbol of Judaism, and notice the grapes on this menorah, a symbol of Israel.
