Ofer Rubin, Israeli Reality

Star of David Israeli artPicture is courtesy of artist Ofer Rubin. This work takes part in an exhibition titled 60 years old [Israel] opens its eyes
Opening: 15.10.2007
Rosh Pina Museum
In the exhibition's catalog I found the following caption about it:

Wood, glass, mirrors and candles
50 cm – 150 cm
This piece reflects the reality of living in Israel today showing the real side of our lives in wood and the illusionary side in mirrors and glass. Future abundance is represented in silver coins and crystals. In the center the Star of David symbolizes the end that is known to all of us.
Ofer Rubin, 45, from Rosh Pina, creates “Jerusalem Wind- chims” some of which are found all across Israel as memorials or as environmental sculptures.
