File under: not something you see every day


Thorny crowns on sale in the Christian Quarter of Jerusalem's Old City. I didn't see anyone actually buying one. Maybe the vendors hoped pilgrims would buy them to save for Easter time?

My photography is available for purchase - visit Around the Island Photography on Etsy and Society6 and bring home something beautiful today!
If the photo you're wishing for is something you've seen here on the blog which isn't in one of my shops yet just let me know and I'll happily list it for you.

The crown of thorns is always strange to me, but seeing a whole box of them like this is very strange.

Eek! i think I'd run a mile from them!

I've never seen one before, though the thorny plant/bush/tree? from which they are made was pointed out to us once when I was such a pilgrim touring your beautiful Israel.

I think this is fascinating!

I love the composition of your photo, and the colors are so rich...

...and here's a thought. Some Christians might make them part of their Christmas decor. It is too easy to celebrate the baby without remembering the rest of the story. It's why some Christians hang a nail on their Christmas tree.

no that is not something you see every day. I love the monochromatic color--it gives life to the variety of textures in the shot.
