On Eagles’ Wings

The Embassy of Israel in Washington DC, United States

This 6-meter-long piece is about a certain experience in the history of both American and Israeli nations, an experience which has helped shape their DNA. At their early years, their founders arrived as immigrants, sailing from overseas, to settle in a new land. The land offered them opportunity and freedom, and demanded solidarity, resourcefulness and hard work. The artwork combines metal birds, hand painted MDF boards and Slate stone, which could be found in Eilat mountains, south Israel.
