Jerusalem, a city of merger and separation
This so special holy and loved city …composed of zippers. Jeans material, peaces of an authentic talit (prayer shawl) and peaces of an army uniform…all surrounded with stones…
The zippers that symbolizes the most the merger and separation…
The jeans, as a symbol of secularism,
The Talit as a symbol of religion and tradition,
And the army uniform, as a symbol of authority and struggle....
All in all composes a unique mosaic with a double meaning…
So is the Temple mount, the holiest place for the Jewish people,
Holy of Holiest…the purest of all… we all realize that it means a fight, a real fight… and the colors that were chosen are military colors…
Every stone… every soul…every spirit…every way of life..
Every choice…so individual so unique…and in the mosaic of life- of this so magnificent and unique city- it is so much together and united…
There is no end to the divinity of Jerusalem. Purity, Judaism and the everlasting connection to mountains, stones, earth and holiness are symbolized by shades of sky-blue and earth

Mosaic tessera, glass, metals and zippers on recycled wood.
I.D: Jerusalem is not all black and white – the reunited city, the city of connections disconnections and so much symbolism.
The zippers symbolize connections and disconnections, a city made up of diverse cultures, diverse people, everything that constitutes this city unite and separate it at the same time.
Jerusalem created from zippers and stones, in black and white shades, everything seems black and white at first, but essentially the city is not at all black and white.
A work of art dealing with the essence of Jerusalem - a material and a divine city, a city of courage and miracles.
Jerusalem is essentially built of very sacred stone and earth but it is also assembled from the divine spirit that pervades this charming city.
The sense of spirituality enveloping this enchanted city combines with the sense of courage displayed by its inhabitants
