    What a fantastic article! Especially the enhanced coloring, as it makes the
    overall picture very realistic.
    I just cannot get enough of biblical History, as I this was part of my B.th.
    Thanking you.

    Spectacular! Wow!

    Based on a drawing and description by Maimonides, many people believe the Temple menorah would have had straight branches, as Chabad chanukias have today. Based on that, they feel the arch doesn’t depict the menorah from the Temple but some other candelabra.

    What extraordinary work! I have written a novel, PARIS LAMB, where the Arch of Titus is featured. It is enhanced by the use of color! Thank you.
