The map of Israel is painted on the seat of the chair with a blue sky with a small white cloud on the back. The map is painted from an eastern point of view. The Golan Heights are painted in brown on the right and the Galillee mountains below them are painted in light green. The Jordan valley and Sharonin are painted using a darker green. On the Sharon's left is the yellow coast and on its right are the brown Judea mountains ending in the yellow negev. The deep blue Mediterranean occupies most of the seat. On the back, a light blue sky is painted with a small white cloud on the upper right.
