JERUSALEM STONE IN LONDON. James Fergusson bequeathed this rosette-decorated stone to his groom, upon whose death the stone passed to the groom’s daughter, Anna Liddon. Three years after Fergusson’s death, she donated the stone to St. Paul’s Cathedral in his honor, as he was once a member of the church’s redecoration committee. Engraved with a rosette, this stone displays the workmanship and design of decorative art in Jerusalem in the Second Temple period, according to author Barkay, a leading Israeli archaeologist. He believes the stone probably functioned as part of a door jamb, perhaps in Herod’s Jerusalem Temple.
