Today's arty photos


The church at Gethsemene from the east.


A lantern at the Russian monastery next door, with the Dome of the Rock in the distance.


Some deteriorating joggling.


The Orthodox site of the birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary.


A different kind of art.

What is 'joggling'?

Peter Mullins said...

It is what was deteriorating in the photo! I suppose 'stone inlayed into stone' would cover it. A post on some lovely architecture of the Marmluk period will follow, and this is a feature of it.

Mamluk. I don't know where the stray 'r' came from.

Joy Davis said...

I could see the deterioration but wasn't sure what it was. Went and looked it up in the dictionary...
1. A joint between two pieces of building material formed by a notch and a fitted projection.
2. The notch or the projecting piece used in such a joint.

Thanks for your research about my tease, Joy. I admit it wasn't a term I remember coming across until a few weeks ago!
