Notre-Dame de l’arche d’Alliance church seats on a hilltop above the village of Abu-Gosh, an Arab village wet of Jeruslaem.
By Christian tradition this is the site of “Kiryat Yearim”, where the Ark of the Covenant resided for 20 years after being in Philistine captivity (I Sam. 7:2).
The big sculpture over the church presents Mary standing above the ark, equoting her with the Ark as a container of divinity.
