“Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem” Psalms 122:6 

Artist: Jeremy Langford 

After two years work on this complex project Jeremy Langford recently installed in the hotel an epic glass sculpture made to symbolize the prayer and desire for peace in the world’s holiest city.

The brief was a creative challenge- To have the piece feel imbued with the spirituality of Jerusalem , while having universal values. To achieve this Jeremy used the verse “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem” (Psalm 122:6) – A verse that readily expresses a universal spirituality in that the prophets see Jerusalem as a center projecting peace throughout the world. It speaks of a dichotomy in time, contrasting the strife and division of Jerusalem today to hopes for the future, of an ideal and peaceful world center, radiating peace for all peoples.
