Edition of 295 

Giclee on canvas

Victor Ostrovsky uses lush pigments and a combination of reality and metaphor to illustrate and define the major dilemma facing Jerusalem, the holiest of cities.

The task facing the master strategist is how to divide this most holy of cities, amongst the three and maintains peace?
