This beautiful artwork depicts a bucolic vision of the Holy City of Jerusalem. In the distant background the Holy Temple can be seen upon the Temple Mount.
Although known primarily from the song Yerusalyim Shel Zahav by Naomi Shemer, the reference to Jerusalem of Gold is first found in various accounts of the stories regarding Rabbi Akiva and his wife. "The daughter of Kalba Savu'a betrothed herself to Rabbi Akiva. When her father heard thereof, he vowed that she was not to benefit from any of his property. Then she went and married him in winter. They slept in a straw bin, and he had to pick out the straw from her hair. He said to her: If I had the means, I would give you a Jerusalem of Gold". So commences the account in the Babylonian Talmud, tractate Nedarim 50a. Parallel source: Ketubot 62b-63a.
