The painting depicts a massive five-domed building inside the city wall. The structure resembles a massive Romanesque church built of red brick. Flat dome are covered with tiles, and the drums are cute by semicircular Romanesque windows. Master, perhaps, took a model from the local surrounding architecture. The valley with sandy paths and trees separates the City from the viewer. The painting are framed with painted sumptuous theatrical curtain.
אם אשכחך ירושלים תשכח ימיני (תהלים קלז ה)
If I forget you, Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its skill (Psalm 137:5)
