Artist's Description

The image was taken in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre Jerusalem.
The image shows The Stone of the Anointing.

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is a Christian church within the walled Old City of Jerusalem. The site is venerated by most Christians as Golgotha, (the Hill of Calvary), where the New Testament says that Jesus was crucified, and is said to also contain the place where Jesus was buried (the sepulchre). The church has been an important pilgrimage destination since at least the 4th century, as the purported site of the Death and Resurrection of Jesus. Today it also serves as the headquarters of the Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem.

Just inside the entrance is The Stone of Anointing, believed to be the spot where Jesus’ body was prepared for burial by Joseph of Arimathea. It is the 13th Station of the Cross. The lamps that hang over the stone are contributed by Armenians, Copts, Greeks and Latins.
