PRINTS are high quality creations that are rolled, unstretched Canvas and need to be framed in glass. To create a Print, an Original painting is professionally scanned to recreate the clarity of each brush stroke. To hang the print without a glass, we add a 3-inch white border to your print. You can then bring your print to your local framer, and have it stretched and mounted on a wooden stretcher bar with wrapped edges. It can then be hung as is, or framed.
STRETCHED AND MOUNTED CANVAS PRINTS: Stretched canvases are constructed around a full 1.5 inch hardwood frame, and are easy to hang with pre-installed hardware and a hanging kit. It can either be hung as is, or framed.

Please allow 3-4 weeks production time for Prints with add-ons.
Any sizes LARGER than 20×60 will ship taken off the stretcher bar and rolled in a tube.

About This Painting
The Holy Temple was built by King Solomon in 826 BCE. His intention was to build a place where people could speak with God and feel his power. The Holy Temple was the center of Jewish life in Israel. While the wall was not part of the Holy Temple, it was part of the barrier that protected the Temple Mount. The Temple was demolished by the Romans in 69 CE, and the Western Wall is all that remains.
The wall is believed to contain the Shechinah Divine Presence that was contained in the Temple prior to its destruction. While the Temple Mount remains the world’s godliest site, it is currently contained within the control of the Jordanian government. There are also heavy restrictions for Jews who wish to visit The Temple Mount under Jewish religious law. The Western Wall is a reminder of close our world is to G-d, making it a special spot to pray and be with G-d. It is customary to write your prayers down on paper and place it in one of the wall’s ancient cracks. The abstract Jewish art aesthetic of this painting will convey this deep message in your home.
