View of the cenotaph of Sarah—the first of the “ancestors” to be buried in the Cave of Machpelah  (Genesis 23).

Note how Arabic writing covers the whole of the fabric covering of the cenotaph.  A cenotaph is a memorial to a person whose body is buried elsewhere—in this case possibly in a cave in the area.

The small red covered “stool” in the lower portion of the image is actually book holder on top of which an open Koran can be placed for reading.
