Author: Huberto Iaillot – 1696.
Artistic reproduction from the original, a beautiful map that can cause polemics, because it is basically impossible to delimit the borders of the famous Twelve Tribes of Israel, it exists many maps about this theme, each of them with its particularities, where many of them probably from the origins, studies and by the own mind of the artists/cartographers. On the left upper side, a beautiful allegory shows Moises and the Tablet of the Ten Commandments and just below a figure that represents the Divinity. On the other side the representation can be secular; a King or the representative of the Sanhedrin above the representation of the roman domain and between them the Ark of the Covenant. On the bottom right corner a representation of the Divinity as a creator of the world and life.
Historically, Israel has always been a controversial subject and full of passions, besides the historical/biblical curiosity of the Twelve Tribes that gave me the incentive to do innumerable researches, the beautiful plasticity of the map completed my decision to do it.
