Physical description

'Visit Israel - land of the Bible' travel poster featuring a silhouetted green hand holding a stylised pink rose by its stem. The stem resembles a smooth pole with red, white and black horizontal stripes. The hand rises up from the ground, which is, together with the background, a pale brown-beige, suggesting a desert. Directly below the hand is a quote from the Torah and Old Testament, 'and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose (Isaiah 35.1)', and below this in larger letters, 'Visit Israel - Land of the Bible'.
