KDVP mosaic depicts skyline of Jerusalem

  • YouthKDVPMosaic
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Jerusalem in May this year, the whole of King David Victory Park undertook a special project to illustrate their love of the Holy City in mosaic. This, the school believed, would truly commemorate the day with a sense of unity and work together to create a vibrant monument and testament to the pupils’ love of Jerusalem. And the work is finally done. The school created a beautiful mosaic, depicting the skyline of Jerusalem, and a Magen David in the vibrant colours of sunset.

High School art teacher Kelsey Smith designed the artwork of the skyline of Jerusalem with the Magen David. Each child was then given one tile to paint in a specific colour, which would eventually make up the finished mosaic.

Once completed, Marcelle Oliver, a parent of the school who also runs extracurricular pottery classes at the school, glazed the tiles and did the firing. The process involved two firings of just under 1 000 tiles, before they could be tiled onto the wall to depict the Magen David and the skyline of Jerusalem.
