The 1,500-year-old mosaic depicts a Nile River landscape and the streets and buildings of a settlement in Egypt where, according to Christian tradition, the prophet Habakkuk had been buried.
“The appearance of buildings on mosaic floors is a rare phenomenon. The buildings are arranged along a main colonnaded street of a city, in a sort of ancient map,” archaeologists Sa’ar Ganor and Rina Avner said. Animals, including a rooster, deer, and birds are depicted in two sections of the mosaic, and there is also an image of a goblet with red fruits. “The artist utilized tesserae of 17 different colors in preparing the mosaic. The investment in the raw materials and their quality are the best ever discovered in Israel,” added Ganor.
