The Temple Mount, one of my Israel Landscape Collection by Gordon Frickers following my first location visit way back in 1984, while on a camping tour of Israel.
The painting reminds us that Israel was laid waste following the Arab Islamic invasion some 1,400 years before this artist arrived and this clearly shown in the collection painted by the Scottish artist David Roberts RA (24 October 1796 – 25 November 1864).
Mark Twain :
wrote “I could ride for 10 miles in any direction and not meet a single living soul“.
He visited Israel in 1867, and published his impressions in Innocents Abroad.
Mark Twain wrote he was amazed by the smallness of the then city of Jerusalem much of which was in ruins.
About Temple Mount he wrote “Up to within a year or two past, no Christian could gain admission to it or its court for love or money“.
This emotive, unusual picture was one of several I made as general views of Jerusalem, this is one of only two I still have available.
Made from location studies, it clearly shows how under developed, poor and neglected Jerusalem was even in the 1980’s.
The site has a new life and a vibrant future.
It was Napoleon Bonaparte who seeing the ruined desolate state of the land when in Israel first declared publicly, the longed for wish should be granted, the Jewish people should return to their ancestral home land.
It was in #Jerusalem ‘The last Supper‘ was eaten, a Passover meal, this beautiful commemoration that still resounds today, celebrating escape from slavery to freedom
“And Thou Shall Tell Thy Son In That Day Saying: It Is Because Of That Which The Lord Did For Me When I Came Forth Out Of Egypt” Exodus xiii, 8, also stated in the Pesach (Passover) Seder.
‘Zion’ was a Biblical name for Jerusalem.
An inspired, important painting touched by something greater than the artist; recommend.
