A pair of earrings based on a mosaic floor's pattern from the Roman fortress in the archeological site of Deir Qala in western Samaria. The site was found by the Palestine Exploration Fund's British researchers in 1873. Remains of a Roman fortress, a Byzantine church and an agricultural farm were excavated. The beautiful mosaic floors were removed and are currently exhibited at the Good Samaritan Museum, located between Jerusalem and Jericho.

This is the first pair of earrings made by CGJ. Looking at the triangle shaped pattern I've imagined the half circle within it in the lower part as the Mount of Olives, the highest peak in Jerusalem, facing east. Therefore, the small form on top of it reminded me a flame of fire. This is how the priests in the temple controlled time, and announced the beginning of new months to the Jewish communities. By lighting fire on the summits of the highest mountains, starting with the flame on the Mount of Olives.
