Gethsemane Olive

This tree is located on the island of Guidecca which is right across a rather large canal from Venice. When I visited the Monastery of the Redentore Church , and saw the tree there, I was told that the tree came from the Garden of Gethsemane, but I don't know its exact age or size. Since the tree has a religious reference, I painted it on a cross.
