Church of the Holy Sepulchre

This photo taken through glass and in dim light is far from perfect but I wanted to share this exquisite model with you.

A model of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem which stood from 1145 until 1808. Perhaps more correctly called the Church of the Resurrection, this model is one of many made by craftsmen in Bethlehem under Franciscan supervision, or by the Franciscans themselves. At least four examples have survived in England. The Church is shown as it was between 1554 and 1719 and each part can be removed giving access to the interior.*
