Jerusalem sculpture by Yomtov Cohen

Jerusalem sculpture at Montefiore Hospital synagogue in the Bronx which I visited on Yom Kippur. Sculpted by Yomtov Cohen, fired by blowtorch. The scope and detail is unbelievable, and yet it and he remain unknown.


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

  1. Agreed, a beautiful piece of sculpture. Beautiful photos too, thank you.

  2. I’m curious since my youngest daughter is an artist. Is this all of one piece, or was it assembled from separate pieces?

    All great work. Enjoy until “next year Jerusalem” takes place. Can’t get to Jerusalem, bring Jerusalem to the Bronx.
