George III (reigned 1760-1820) recognised the importance of creating a positive image for the Royal Family. He actively encouraged painters to record his public appearances with the queen and their children. This fan is based on a painting by Johann Heinrich Ramberg and depicts the King and Royal Family attending the Royal Academy Exhibition.

Inscription in Hebrew from the IV Century AD found in Portugal. This is probably the earliest inscription in Hebrew. It says "יחיאל היהודי" or Yechiel the Jew. We did not even KNOW there were Jews there so far back!

Remains of massive walls (1m thick!) on the Hill of Jonah, Ashdod. Ashdod is a beautiful city, sometimes pounded by terrorist kasams from Gaza (yes, Hammas is CRAZY!). JUST look at that view of the Mediterranean!

20,000-year-old buildings in Jordan. It is a big wonder why there would be buildings at all before agriculture and proper writing even came about, which shakes all our understanding of early human civilization.

Khirbet Qeiyafa pottery altar. Unearthed by Hebrew U., a series of objects testify to the existence of a monotheistic cult in Biblical times and specifically around King David's, suggesting the existence of King David and of what 3 thousand years later became Judaism as we know it. Believe it or not, archeologists do not take these things for granted; more often than not, King David is thought to be but a myth.

Close view of the mosaic found at the archaeological site of Huqoq in Israel (Jim Haberman). I love reading ancient Hebrew inscriptions, the calligraphy is in a way very 'modern', aka very friendly to the modern eye. I can distinguish the word "Amal" or 'effort' at the very bottom, and while the letters are all readable the fact that it's so destroyed makes it hard to read other words. I love the depiction of Mr. Whomever at the right.

The so called Mona Lisa of the Galilee is part of an early mosaic in Tzippori (Israel, of course). I find it's resemblance to the widely known Da Vinci Gioconda shocking and intriguing.
