Laughing doves are commonly seen and heard in the gardens of Jerusalem. This lovely original painting is based on an actual photograph of a dove seen perching on a branch at the Garden Tomb. It is painted by Peter Spaander – the Garden Tomb artist and guide. This bookmark features the scripture: “And in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge” (Psalm 57:1). (5.5 cm x 15 cm) MADE IN THE HOLY LAND
