Menorah Sketch First Century AD
Color photo of a sketch in plaster of the Temple Menorah during the time of Jesus. This sketch was incised into a thick layer of plaster on the wall of apparently a priest’s home in the Upper City of Jerusalem. Whoever he was he was familiar with the Temple vessels, including the menorah. The shape is almost completely preserved, and to the right is the table of the shewbread and altar of incense. The sketch is located in the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.
“three most wonderful works of art, universally renowned: a lampstand, a table, and an altar of incense.” (Flavius Josephus, Jewish War, V,v,5)
