Revelation 21:18-21 Twelve Foundations
New Jerusalem
The vector art we did of New Jerusalem (home page and above), is not intended to accurately represent the city or even my vision of it.  I think almost everyone that has ever read Revelation has searched their own imagination as to how it may look.  I personally, don’t envision a gold cube but a city with a crystal Temple and Holy of Holy’s as the highest part.  I imagine the light of God and the Savior radiating out of it thus giving it a golden light. So the artwork (above) is to highlight the foundations and the gemstones chosen.  The gemstones encrusted on the foundations are attributable to the 12 Apostles, but through a little research, we can see that they reveal a lot more than that.
