The Word Peace inside a Star of David

Picture of a stained glass window in a Jewish mausoleum in Paris is courtesy of Fugue who published it on Flickr. He wrote to me:
The Star of David itself doesn't have any specific meaning to me; I'm not Jewish and not very religious. But it was a lovely mausoleum, like a small granite Tardis with a window looking out on strange and beautiful worlds.

One day I'll make a list of all the words I found inside these emblems. It seems that only "important" words like the names of God, Zion, Israel, feel comfortable in this frame...


Star of David Perforation

Mordechai Kafri, Sculptor [1920-2001] built in 1973 in Mount Herzl, Jerusalem, Israel, 300X400X100 cm memorial to the Israeli soldiers whose burial place is unknown. He made a perforation in the shape of a Star of David in a gray rock. Through it one could see the blue skies. Since then the plants around it grew so that now one sees through this shape green leaves.
