There are four holy cities in Israel, which, according to the Jewish mystical tradition, correspond to the four elements:

- earth = Hevron, where our Matriarchs and Patriarchs are buried;
- fire = Jerusalem, onetime site of the burnt offerings, and seat of the Divine Presence;
- water = Tiberias, on the Kinneret, or Sea of Galilee;
- air = my beloved Tzfat, the town with the highest elevation in Israel. Tucked away in the northern mountains, this legendary home of the 16th-century Kabbalists is also known today for its colony of artists (many of whom, of course, are Kabbalists themselves...).

The arrangement in this piece is based on their geographic order, north to south.

This piece was featured in the 2014 fine art photography book Understanding Israel: Jaffa is More than Oranges, by Susan Ressler. http://www.blurb.com/b/5899512-understanding-israel-8x10-edition

Frame styles pictured are representative; the frame you receive may not be identical.

All 11x14 frame options include matting. Wood frames with real glass are available in a light, dark, white or black finish. "Plexi" frame option (in white only) features PVC construction with a pane of clear polystyrene in place of glass - lighter weight and great for kids' rooms (budget-friendly too).
