Gethsemane Olive Tree


By View Artist Details

Perhaps some of the best-known trees in the world, the olive trees of Gethsemane are certainly some of the oldest, and their deeply gnarled and curved trunks evoke huge respect and admiration. They lie in the garden at Gethsemane, the site where Jesus held the Last Supper and was betrayed. Did Jesus shelter beneath them? No one knows but the garden is one of the natural areas that most resembles the Jerusalem of 2,000 years ago. This print is a reproduction of the artist’s original watercolour of one of the key trees in the garden.

Medium: Premium art print on 100% cotton canvas ready for framing or stretching
