This scene showcases the top of the Jesus Tomb, also known as the Holy Edicule, and the intricate details of the inner dome within the church. The Holy Edicule takes center stage, situated on the west side of the Catholicon of the Church of the Resurrection. This sacred structure, raised above the location believed to be Christ's tomb, emanates a sense of reverence and holiness. Its design is both ornate and intricate, reflecting the deep spiritual significance of the site. The Edicule is composed of two distinct rooms, each with its own purpose. The first room contains the Angel's Stone, a relic believed to be a fragment of the massive stone that once sealed the tomb. The second room is the tomb itself, a place of profound pilgrimage and contemplation for believers. Surrounding the Edicule is the Rotunda, an architectural marvel that was added around the chapel circa 380 CE. The Rotunda's grandeur is apparent in the ornate columns that support its dome, and it serves as a majestic backdrop for the sacred center that is the sepulcher.Image ID#: 32779 / Category: Travel, Religion, Architecture / Price: 499$
