Artist's Description

This photo was taken at the ruins of an old Jewish cemetery, found on a hillside in Segovia, Spain, with my Canon PowerShot S5 IS camera.
As the Jews were driven away from Segovia in 1492, the graves must date up to the end of the 15th century.

In excavations done in this graveyard, skeletons were found in all the graves dug in the rocks, like the one seen in this photo. This small-size grave, dug in the shape of a human body, is probably a grave of a child. In this old Jewish graveyard you can find either this kind of grave or larger graves which took advantage of natural caves.
