Cartouche


Detail of the area above the lintel of the Lateinschulhaus. There are inscriptions in Hebrew (as seen in the cartouche here), Latin and Greek all over the facade.

That is very beautiful, Z. Your serie anbout this building is very intéresting. Unfortunately, nobody builds any buildings like this one.
Thanks for your visit.

Tanya: Thanks!

Halcyon: No, I don't. And I should get Dina from Jerusalem over to translate for us.

Claude: True, all that handwork is something of the past. Maybe there will be a revival, maybe with public works projects given the economic situation we're currently in?
