Made in Palestine, 1600s

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, dedicated to the Tomb of Christ is one of the most important Christian shrines. This elaborate miniature model was made to be sold as a pilgrim souvenir. Produced in olive wood with ivory and mother of pearl inlay, it has lettered parts which would have made it easier to carry and reassemble.
