These paintings in acrylic and metal leaf on paper pay homage to the seven centuries of cross-cultural fertilization between Christians, Jews and Muslims in al-Andalusia, Spain. The paintings, together with calligraphed banners of poetry from each tradition, have been shown as a traveling exhibit in Silverton, Oregon, at the Jerusalem Fund Gallery of the Palestine Center in Washington, D.C., and at the Interfaith Community Sancturary in Seattle, Washington.
