Sorry I'm a day late, but I thought you might like to see this anyway. This is the best image I could find of a mosaic from Dominus Flevit ("the Lord wept") chapel, which is on the Mount of Olives. It is below a large window that looks out over the city. The inscription around the hen is the Latin text of Luke 13:34, and I am told that right across the bottom it says in Latin, YOU WERE NOT WILLING. Our pastor, who saw this several years ago and told us about it from the pulpit on Sunday, says that the hen looks like she would spit fire at anyone who tried to get to those chicks.
