Too long a sacrifice
Can make a stone of the heart.
O when may it suffice?
The artistís impression of a scene at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. A poignant take on the conflict in the region using Jerusalemís landscape. Even though the conflict and politics of the region would always form a backdrop to any artistic work, a conscious effort was made to let it not interfere with the work of art. To make that possible, faces of the soldiers are deliberately not shown thereby leaving it on the viewer to interpret their emotions. Are they praying or grieving? Are they at the Wailing Wall to seek solace? Or are they just reflecting at the futility of the whole conflict. They are shown in embrace to signify their shared beliefs. Although toned down, guns are shown as the only reminder of a conflicted region and society. Jerusalemís landscape and the human element have been primarily contrasted with the wallís sandy color covered by the soldiers green. A favorite of the artist, this Jerusalem landscape painting is an attempt to inter-weave a cityís landscape and its emotions into a single painting without making it a political statement. The Wailing Wall is used to represent faith and belief. And the soldiers as someone who have come either to grieve for someone who fell down defending the symbol of belief itself or to renew their shaken beliefs. The painting shows how a cityís landscape and its peopleís emotions nurture each other.
That is Heaven's part, our part
