Hebrew Garden – Sculpture environment in schoolyard:
200 sqm, environmental sculpture, completed 2004, Levin school Bet Shemesh, for the ministry of Education and the Bet Shemesh municipality.
All of the elements of the garden are used to demonstrate the concept of space in the Jewish culture.
“The rain sculpture” is made of a cube that splits into two pyramids which touch at their apex and is placed on a grass hillock that delineates the watershed.
“The benches of time” are constructed of white concrete and brass rods delineating the division of the full day into variable hours.
“The tabernacle and the small tabernacle” are made of architectural concrete and laser cut steel which show the subjective concept of space and the part that light plays in its definition.
