The Stamp that Remains
Mapping of the Old City of Jerusalem made from postage stamps from the Arab World in the early 1960s. A light silver wire draws the walls of the Old City, silk threads weave the gates and the roads, the garden of Al Aqsa Mosque, the Dome of Rock, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Western Wall, the Armenian Museum and Damascus Gate. The postage stamps show the character of the Old City and refer to the identity. Here Jerusalem is not recognised as the capital of Israel, but as the capital of Palestine, and the essence of the Arab World since forever.
