Tekhelet blues

EXHIBITION: Jerusalem Museum Untangles History of the Color Blue, From Biblical Hue to Ancient Royalty. The show inks out the history of the enigmatic sky blue dye known as ‘tekhelet.’ I noted this exhibition at the Jerusalem Bible Lands Museum last May. This Smithsonian piece by Meilan Solly collects the media coverage of it.

For past PaleoJudaica posts on the telekhet dye in the Bible etc., start here and follow the links.
