The Classic Kotel
The Classic Kotel offers a lifelike depiction of the Western Wall in Jerusalem. The Western Wall is a holy site of prayer that Jews hold near and dear to their hearts. It is the last remaining piece of the Holy Temple, and the closest they can get to the Temple Mount under Jewish laws.
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.

About This Painting
In this Kotel painting, we see a bird’s-eye view of the Western Wall with Jerusalem in the background. People at the base of the Kotel are concentrated on their prayers, and the painting emanates a feeling of introspectiveness. In the background, the Tower of David looms above the city. After the Second Holy Temple was destroyed by the Romans, only the Western Wall was left standing. After an earthquake in 1546 damaged the Temple Mount, Sultan Suleyman declared that the Jews should have the Western Wall as their permanent place of prayer. However, the trouble didn’t end there. For thousands of years to come, Jews still didn’t have full access to the Wall. It wasn’t until 1967 that Jews were able to access the Kotel without conflict. Over the last century, the Western Wall has become more spiritually important for Jews than it ever was in the past.
