This work is taking part in the Yellow Holocaust Star Exhibit at Yigal Alon House, Safed, which started on 30-4-2008. Curator: Reli Wasser.
Technique: Mosaic and mix media on wood.The Yellow Patch is going through transformation, it changes its color to gold.
Gold appears in the mosaics of the Early Byzantine Art as a color of holiness. In my work it signifies the holiness of Jewish people that were murdered in the Holocaust Each one of the figures standing on the Magen David symbolizes one million Jews.
The wall in the background is a reminder to the " Wall" in Jerusalem, the ultimate symbol of Judaism
