Longing. 12"x16"x1.5"

  • The mountain gazelle is found in Israel, Lebanon and Turkey, where only 3,000 now exist. In 2009, the Jerusalem council rejected a request by two kibbutzim to develop the land known as Emek Ha'tzvaim (Gazelle Valley), and instead, voted to reserve it as parkland, ending a nine year battle over the valley's future. Emek Ha'tzvaim is the last open space in the heart of Jerusalem.

     

    The Hebrew calligraphy passage is from Psalms 42:2 (תהילים) and reads:

     

    כאיל תערג על אפיקי מים, כן נפשי תערג אליך אלהים

    As a gazelle yearns for a stream of water, I yearn for you, God.

     

    Longing was created using archival, lightfast acrylic ink, and 24 karat gold leaf, on museum quality, cradled wooden panel.
