In the Middle Ages, the Via Dolorosa was identified as the route along which Christ carried His cross; I’ve set my easel at the very spot commemorating where Christ received His crown of thorns.
In addition to being a spiritual landmark for Christians, the Via Dolorosa is also a modern street in the Arab section of the old city. As I worked, small Arab children gathered around me and at one point playfully pelted me with pebbles. Happily, Arab shopkeepers immediately came to my rescue and chased off the pint-sized intruders. I later bought a decorative tile from one of my rescuers as a small gesture of thanks.
