The photos in this collection are of the striking, larger-than-life metal sculpture overlooking a large park in Beit Shemesh, Israel.
The sculptor of this metal memorial was Pnina Elyakim who lived in Beit Shemesh herself where she was an art student. Not an easy subject to tackle.
Would you agree she created an appropriate, beautifully executed work?
