Description: Situated in the heart of modern metropolitan Tel Aviv, the ancient city of Yaffo (Jaffa) holds out as an island of antiquity. Underneath the city, archaeological excavations have revealed layer upon layer of civilization, dating back over 3,000 years. In Tanach (Bible), in the Book of Joshua, Yaffo was allotted to the tribe of Dan. Until modern times Jaffa was the only city with a functioning port, and so was the gateway to the entire Land of Israel. In this painting of the ancient port city, we see some of the historic buildings. Cutting across the painting is the silhouetted Yaffo jetty, which protected the inner port. And beyond, the sun sets over the Mediterranean Horizon.
