Sea of Galilee - Silk from Israel

SOLD OUT.  ONE PAIR.  Size 22" X 33.5".  New.  Classic wood rods included.  One pair available.  One of a kind.  

This particular piece of silk reminded us of the Sea of Galilee and its surrounding beauty.  It came to us from Northern Galilee along with other pieces of hand dyed silk that we use to make flags.  Sometimes the silks actually smell like the sea as we go to spray them with water and press out the fold lines.  The aroma has always been an uplifting experience when we consider we might be in the presence of the waters where Jesus walked - and walked on - and calmed during the storm: The sea where he so often taught, healed the sick, and miraculously fed thousands.  It's where he last met the disciples after his resurrection.  The fragrance of the sea gradually dissipates; but we always wish it would remain for the next person who holds the silk.  The artisan from Israel has closed her studio now, and we won't be receiving any more silk from her.  That makes this piece all the more special.  We named it Sea of Galilee.

"Walking by the sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers: Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew, his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen."  Matt 4:18

"Jesus departed there, and came near to the sea of Galilee; and he went up into the mountain, and sat there."  Matt 15:29

"Jesus withdrew to the sea . . . he spoke to his disciples that a little boat should stay near him because of the press of the crowd . . . for he had healed many."  Mark 3:7,10

"Again he began to teach by the seaside."  Mark 4:1
