Israeli artist Tamar Messer created this modern edition of the biblical book Song of Songs, whose 117 verses are customarily attributed to King Solomon. The traditional commentary views the text as an allegory of God’s love for the Jewish people. Others treat the text literally as a description of the love between a man and a woman. Messer notes that for her rendition she chose to emphasize the connection between the Jewish people and the Land of Israel. The bright colors in each of the twenty prints stunningly illustrate the flora, fauna, and landscapes of ancient Israel. Each of the twenty illustrations is silkscreened, using twenty to thirty color plates per image.
