The Whale Sculpture
According to the biblical book of Jonah, God told Jonah to go to Nineveh and tell its inhabitants that they had sinned. But Jonah refused and instead, boarded a ship in the Jaffa port bound for Tarshish.
During the voyage a storm broke out. Jonah understood that this was his punishment, and asked to be thrown into the sea, where he was swallowed by a great fish.
Afterward God forgave Jonah and the great fish spit him out. Jonah then went on to Nineveh to prophesy as he had been commanded. Click for a larger image
