Psalms 121

In this piece the artist has captured the first line of Psalms 121, “I lift my eyes to the hills…”.  As one of the Psalms of Ascent, this Psalm is often called the Pilgrims Psalm. You can see the subject looking to the hills as he is making his way on his journey. So fitting as this Psalm was often recited on annual pilgrimages to Jerusalem.
