For SkyWatch Friday we can watch the changing clouds and sky through American pop artist Roy Lichtenstein's "Modern Head."
Made of brushed steel, the sculpture stands 31 feet (9 1/2 meters) tall.
In the previous post we saw the rock sculpture depicting Abraham's almost-sacrifice of Isaac, his beloved son. On one face of the stone was written in Hebrew pahad Yitzhak, meaning the fear of Isaac, or Yitzhak's terror.
The two were assembled in close proximity in the garden of Safra Square (Jerusalem City Hall) for a reason.
Following Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin's death, Roy Lichtenstein, James Goodman, and Jeffrey Loria donated "Modern Head" to the Israel Museum in honor of Rabin. The museum later lent it to the Jerusalem Municipality.
Together the two sculptures, even though made before the 1995 assassination, create a tacit memorial site to the late Yitzhak (Isaac) Rabin.
