Dror Auslander "Lool" Yemenite-Jews

Painter Dror Auslander told me that when he made this series of works about the popular TV parody called “Lool” (hen-house) many of his colleagues tried to stop him, saying that investing in Zionism is a "total loss" since nobody is interested in Zionism any more. Dror didn't listen to them, fortunately.
>In this painting we see famous Israeli singer Arik Einshtein
and famous Israeli film director Uri Zohar (who represent the Yemenite-Jews) mocking the good manners of the German-Jews.
This work is showing now in the Star of David Exhibition in Yavne Gallery, which was opened on the 23 March 2007. Curator: Roni Reuven.
