Modern Jewish Art
  Sgan-Cohen, Migdal David

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Unknown,

The picture is encircled by a wooden frame. The Tower of David is depicted in gray monochrome, seen from an angle on the left, within a frame reminiscent of a television screen. The sides of the wall facing front to the right are lit while the sides on an angle are in shadow emphasizing the protruding corner of the wall. The tower and walls are set against a grayish white background with a pink tone. שלש שנים/Three years as well as a Hebrew inscription are written is written in hebrew beneath the house of the wall in a gray cursive script. The inscription is a pun in Hebrew, which alludes to the double function of the Tower of David as both a Jewish site and a minaret: מגדל דוד מסגדוד מגדל סגיד Tower of David, David Mosque, Worship Tower. Roofs of other buildings are discernible by the tower, suggested by shading above the wall on the right.
