ON THE COVER: A bronze figure of a deity lifts his arm to strike. Both of the figure’s hands originally held weapons, and the eye sockets probably once contained inlay. Along with more than 1,700 other artifacts that Elie Borowski placed in the Lands of the Bible Archaeology Foundation, the smiting god waits for a permanent museum to be built in Jerusalem. BAR features this great contemporary collector in “Elie Borowski Seeks a Home for His Collection,” and spotlights a selection of his archaeological masterpieces in “Treasures From the Lands of the Bible.”
