A watershed yields a branching, be it of physical terrain, historical events or spiritual and aesthetic concepts. Such an idea is particularly powerful in conjunction with the city of Jerusalem. The exhibit arc encompasses multiple divergences that begin with and come back to the geological topography of Jerusalem. That topography—an outcropping of land from the Judaean plain, surrounded by valleys on three sides, offers a symbolic statement of how the spiritual foundations of Jerusalem branch in three Abrahamic directions, how multiple spiritual ramifications, legalistic and mystical, have flowed in diverse streams, and yields watersheds of aesthetic and political questions, both historical and contemporary.
