A Drawing Journey Along the Length and Breadth of the city of Beer Sheva
Beer Sheva, the capital of the Negev desert, is one of the most ancient cities in the world. A historical water well which is located in the Old Quarter is associated with the biblical narrative of Abraham. The Old Quarter is a beautifully preserved ancient Ottoman city. Beer Sheva is today a modern city of 250 thousand inhabitants that houses leading cultural institutions in Israel which are world-renowned. The desert that blossomed in the spirit of the country’s founder David Ben-Gurion adds spectacular beauty to the city. The book presented here summarizes dozens of illustration tours that tell the history of the city, its beauty and the multicultural spirit of its inhabitants.
