My Intro to Israel, Day 5, Scene 9
Looming 12 feet tall in Kfar Nahum (Capernaum) National Park, this imposing bronze Statue of the Apostle Peter actually weighs a ton. He has a fish at his feet, a staff in his left hand, and a gigantic key in his right hand. This portrayal of Peter standing on rock holding the key to the kingdom is based on the following passage of Scripture:
13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, Who do people say the Son of Man is?
14 They replied, Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.
15 But what about you? he asked. Who do you say I am?
16 Simon Peter answered, You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.
17 Jesus replied, Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. 18 And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. (Matthew 16, NIV)
The sculpture is the work of American sculptor Charles L. Madden (1934-2012) of Philadelphia, PA. It was dedicated by Pope John Paul II in March 2000.
İsraile Önsözüm, Gün 5, Sahne 9
Kfar Nahum (Capernaum) Milli Parkında başgösteren bu Havari Petrus'un heybetli bronz 12 ayak yüksekliğinde heykeli tam bir ton ağırlığındadır. Onun ayaklarının dibinde bir balık, sol elinde bir asa, ve sağ elinde devasa bir anahtar vardır. Petrusun "krallık anahtarı"nı tutarak kaya üzerinde duran bu tasviri Kutsal Kitapta aşağıdaki pasaja dayanmaktadır:
13 İsa, Filipus Sezariyesi bölgesine geldiğinde öğrencilerine şunu sordu: Halk, İnsanoğlunun kim olduğunu söylüyor?
14 Öğrencileri şu karşılığı verdiler: Kimi Vaftizci Yahya, kimi İlyas, kimi de Yeremya ya da peygamberlerden biridir diyor.
15 İsa onlara, Siz ne dersiniz dedi, Sizce ben kimim?
16 Simun Petrus, Sen, yaşayan Tanrının Oğlu Mesihsin yanıtını verdi.
17 İsa ona, Ne mutlu sana, Yunus oğlu Simun! dedi. Bu sırrı sana açan insan değil, göklerdeki Babamdır. 18 Ben de sana şunu söyleyeyim, sen Petrussun ve ben kilisemi bu kayanın üzerine kuracağım. Ölüler diyarının kapıları ona karşı direnemeyecek. 19 Göklerin Egemenliğinin anahtarlarını sana vereceğim. Yeryüzünde bağlayacağın her şey göklerde de bağlanmış olacak; yeryüzünde çözeceğin her şey göklerde de çözülmüş olacak. (Matta 16, YÇ)
Heykel Philadelphia, PAdan Amerikalı heykeltıraş Charles L. Maddenın (1934-2012) eseridir. 2000 yılı Mart ayında Papa John Paul II tarafından ithaf edilmiştir.

With the Kineret in view, managed a wonderful scene and great contrast, both in subjects and colors, Murat.
Excelent sharp carved details of the statue, the iron bars a bit on the way - but the whole is intriguing photography.

Good capture, taken from a good POV that shows the outlines and folds of the robes very well.

this picture is very attractive and interesting. What impresses me the most is its graphism. You chose a good perspective to present this monument, the statue is defined with excellent clarity and sharpness, despite the intricate lower backdrop and the luminous view and sky above. You achieved remarkable definition all over and the sense of depth is pleasing as well. Great work, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Like the composition, framed with a branch at the right and the big culture as the main subject with the blue sea and mountains at the back
Well done, Maria
Note: do you imagine a fisher dressed that way in old or any time?

At this size and weight, Peter is quite imposing! I'm sure he was much more welcoming than that would suggest of course, but this is an impressive sculpture indeed. I like how you've composed this to show ample surroundings, especially with the subtle and varied shades of blue as a backdrop. Nice angle too, giving it more of a 3D appearance. Sharp and detailed, well taken. enjoy the rest of the evening. Take it easy.

I liked the visual effect you got with those fences, that aren't so nice themselves. I liked the view of the lake and these details of this sculpture. a very important personage of history.
