Fountain of Wisdom, 2009

The pink Georgian marble fountain seen here is one of the main features of the Hebrew Cultural Garden. Recently restored, it sits atop seven pillars representing the seven branches of wisdom. The Hebrew inscription running across its sides is from Proverbs chapter 9, verse 1 and reads: "Wisdom hath built herself a house; she hath hewn her out of seven pillars."
