The map of Israel is painted in black and white colours. The sea is painted in black, and is darker at its upper part. The land is painted in white, underneath which black brushstrokes are invisible. Black brushstrokes above the white surface emphisize representations of mountains (Judea, Galillee, Carmel, Golan). The Negev is depicted in white with gray dots. The Sea of Galillee and the Dead Sea are painted in black. A black fragmentary line represents the Jordan river.
