Roy Shinar Star of David Ceiling1

Roy told me that he painted this ceiling in the Synagogue of Maalot after seeing a similar design on a book of old Synagogues' frescos. This specific one is from Morocco and he liked this shape that looks like three eight figures which reminded him of a pumpkin.

On my way to the Jerusalem Annual Art Fair in Chutzot Hayotcer I stopped to look at the Sir Moshe Montefiori
Wind Mill in the Mishkanot Shaananim quarter of Jerusalem. Behind a glass window I saw the wagon that used to carry this British philantropist on his many journeys in Israel and in Europe between 1827 and 1875, journeys that were intented to strengthen the Jewish settlement in Israel. On the door of this wagon my eye caught three yellow Stars of David on a blue square background and two smaller red ones beside them..
