Mini Jerusalem Sphere
H.20 cm x 14 cm (8 inches x 5.5 inches)
The city of Jerusalem in the form of a sphere. The concept derives from Mediaeval maps which depicted Jerusalem as a circular city at the centre - the navel - of the world from which all distances to other cities were measured. The sculpture depicts the spirit of the city, its ancient walls and buildings of many styles, periods and cultures. Mounted on a marble base the sphere is revolvable. Designed by Frank Meisler in metal silver and gold plated. Limited Edition. Certificate of Authenticity.
