Doors and Gates

North Carolina Museum of Art

At first glance of the exhibit of Doors of Jerusalem, perched high on the ceiling of the North Carolina Museum of Art near the stairs, it’s hard to tell what the ghost-like images are trying to say. An arch of the head reveals scripture on the face and arms. A somewhat hidden plaque explains what it means. There are three images that represent the doors of Jerusalem from the Song of Songs. The above image’s mouth has Lions across it. The Lion’s gate is one of seven openings in the Old Walls of Jerusalem.
