Passageway - Site before beginning_edite

Inspired by his first impression, the artist created an ad-hoc sketch model on site, using small pieces of local limestone.The design accentuates the transition from one view to the other by creating a passageway, marked on either side by monolithic blocks of local stone of varying shape, size and orientation.



The idea for this installation arose from the topographical situation of the place, which is situated on the ridge of a hill. From here the visitor is offered two strikingly different views: one view westwards towards the Mediterranean Sea and the other one towards Kaukab village, which is beautifully situated on a rounded mound against the backdrop of successive layers of mountain ridges leading towards the Upper Galilee.

​The sculpture was created on site, during a period of three intensive weeks and with the help of the local community.
