Embroidered with the finest threads of Israel, this wall hanging is a constant reminder of the sanctity of Jerusalem. Shaped like a shield, a symbol for the role the Holy City plays in defending the nation of Israel, the bottom is designed with an Old City of Jerusalem motif. The wall hanging is designed using raw silk which is appliqued and attached with embroidery. The fringes are made from glass and metal beads and the art may be hung from the attached string.
