Crystal Trumpeters
In 1988 the 'Crystal Trumpeters' were constructed in memory of the Biblical story where the Israelites marched around the walls of Jericho for six days and blew their trumpets on the seventh day and watched as the city walls collapsed. The crystals symbolise various moments in the Old Testament such as the slavery in Egypt, the parting of the Red Sea, the receiving of the Ten Commandments, the crossing of the River Jordan and the arrival in the Promised Land.

The project was designed by Mrs Peggy Westmoreland and all work carry out on this project was totally voluntary by the people of Jericho. The sculpture is located in Darwin Street.
