In numerous biblical references, the land of Canaan is seen as the 'Promised Land' in which the Israelites were to settle, and against whose population (the Canaanites) the Israelites would have to prevail.
Canaan was a real place and is treated as such in the Bible. It was the ancient name for Palestine. It is repeatedly referred to as a land 'flowing with milk and honey'. It covers all of Palestine west of the Jordan River. The view of the Promised Land can still be seen today from Mt Nebo, much as Moses would have seen it.
This painting is an expression of the "Promised Land", a place I want to visit.
