Valley, Psalm 121

The city of Jerusalem is located 760 meters up in the Judean Mountains and is surrounded by valleys and dry riverbeds. To walk to the city, one has to travel through the valleys. This painting is inspired by Psalm 121, "a song of ascents". The Psalm was sung as the people walked through the valley and ascended to the holy city of Jerusalem.
