High Museum of Art in Atlanta: 6,456 Miles from Jerusalem, Israel; 340 Miles from JerUSAlem, Georgia; or 0 Cybermiles

“He had a vision in a dream. A ladder was standing on the ground, its top reaching up towards heaven as Divine angels were going up and down on it.” (Genesis 28:12)
Angels in Jacob’s dream go up from the Land of Israel and go down throughout the world.

from the Israel Museum's Shrine of the Book in Jerusalem, home of ancient Bible scrolls.

Middle image: Cyberangels spiral up from a NASA satellite image of the Land of Israel on a smartphone screen on Mel Alexenberg’s newest book Through a Bible Lens.  They launch the book throughout the world from the artist/author’s studio in Israel.

Bottom image: Alexenberg’s lithograph “Digitized Homage to Rembrandt: Day Angels” that has been in the collection of the High Museum of Art since 1987.  In tribute to Rembrandt on the 350th year of his death, his digitized angels dormant in the museum’s flat files awaken to adorn the cover of the 2019 book Through a Bible Lens: Biblical Insights for Smartphone Photography and Social Media.  They fly from the book cover to the Shrine of the Book in Jerusalem, Israel, on to Jerusalem, Georgia.
