More pieces of Bethlehem

Church of the Nativity. Tony McMahon. 2012

Security wall through a fence. Tony McMahon. 2012

Yesterday over at the Templar Blog (a very lively blog indeed!), Tony McMahon posted some photos of his recent visit to Bethlehem. In the image above from the Church of the Nativity one can see where the artisan who fashioned the relic I wrote about yesterday found their inspiration.

As you can see McMahon also captured an evocative image of the security wall. A beautiful olive grove marred by chain-link, concrete, and fear.

What say you?
