Joseph’s Tools, al-Nāṣira (Nazareth)

According to legend and biblical narrative, Jesus’ father Josepth had his workshop in Nazareth. And it was in Nazareth that I took this photo last year on my birthday, July 4th. Although there were some modern tools, they sit alongside hammers and files, showing both how much and how little the work of human hands is today to two thousand years ago.
