The painting depicts the tomb of Simeon bar Yohai. The grave monument appears in the form of gates surmounted by two lights. It stands on top of a hill (Mount Meron). The buildings of a town (probably Safed) appear on the right side of the painting. High, peaked cypress trees punctuate the horizon. Green hills and trees appear in the foreground.
