Jerusalem murals

 

Visitors to Jerusalem enjoy its unique mix of people, ancient and modern history in a creative new way in the ever-growing series of delightful wall murals adorning streets throughout the capital. At the Old City’s Dung Gate, above the stones of a centuries-old market street, ancient larger-than-life Jerusalemites do their shopping. Nearby, in the City of David, the scene depicts daily life along an ancient scenic promenade by the 2,000-year-old Pool of Siloam.

 

Three murals grace the heart of the downtown shopping district: One, on the corner of King George Street and Jaffa Road acknowledges both past and future in an action scene of tenants refurbishing their balconies and a realistic depiction of the light rail soon to traverse Jaffa Road  (which in 1869 took pride in being the city’s first paved street).

 

The colorful triptych on Bezalel Street at the Gerard Behar cultural center presents a whimsical vision of Jerusalem entitled “Around the World in 92 Days,” and includes the Eiffel Tower, the Pyramids, and even a hot-air balloon.  And not far from there, at 21 Ben-Yehuda Street, the “residents” seem too busy enjoying life on their balconies to glance at the popular pedestrian mall below. Meanwhile, near the Mahane Yehuda fruit and vegetable market, at 70 Agrippas Street, a five-story-high tableau of vegetable vendors and friendly neighbors seamlessly blends into real life.

 

Look for these and more marvelous murals by artists of the Cité de la Creation studio from Lyon, France and talented Israelis they have trained, brought to you by the Jerusalem Municipality.
