From a series about fences and walls along international borders, this print is based on a satellite view of the West Bank at Qalqiliya and includes several Bible stories as illustrated by wood engraver Gustave Doré. In one story, Abraham expels his son Ishmael from the family. Muslims trace their ancestry back to Ishmael. Also shown is Jacob, Abraham's grandson who later became Israel, wrestling with an angel to secure the angel's blessing. You can read more about the print here.
