Israel Museum Panoramas

Posted by Avital Pinnick on August 9, 2015


A few more panoramas from my class exercise, taken at the Israel Museum. The first photo shows the two dominant features of the Shrine of the Book, the white dome in the shape of a jar lid (the scrolls were found in covered jars), representing the Sons of Light, and the black slab representing the Sons of Darkness.

The second photo shows the famous “Ahava” (“Love”) sculpture from the reverse side, with the nearby Jerusalem neighbourhoods.


This exhibit was very low, so I wasn’t able to get good shots of the panorama because I didn’t want to lie on the floor in the long hallway leading to the main building. The laser-cut aluminum silhouettes represent technological advances and are an accompaniment to the exhibit, A Brief History of Humankind. If I’d had more time, I would have tried to put one of the more prominent sculptures in the center of the frame, but the hall was quite crowded at the time (another good reason for not lying on the floor).

Ahava Sculpture, Israel Museum

Posted by Avital Pinnick on September 10, 2014


Robert Indiana’s Ahava (Love) sculpture (1977), photographed before and after sunset. A lot of my sunflare photos didn’t turn out well because I forgot to clean the filter. Important to remember!
