This curious or maybe bewildered kitten didn't know what to make of this installation.
Neither did I.
It is one part of "Residents of the City" and was created by Bernardo Shkolnick.
Umm, I wonder what city he refers to.
It was part of last week's Old City of Jerusalem Light Festival. (See more in previous posts.)
Their website explains
The installation shows a representation of the different parts of our own personality in 5 stereotypes. The diverse mixture of these psychological stereotypic elements in each one of us creates the infinite kinds of human beings that we meet everywhere walking in the city . Skolnick uses ordinary illuminated display-window mannequins to represent these universal stereotypes as “humans” of diverse ages involved in different activities.
Near the "artwork" on Muristan Street I found the evening gathering place of the Old City's countless cats!
They must have felt secure behind the fence that protects this monument.
You can click on the photo and read the interesting history.
The complex in back of this stone is called the Muristan (bimaristan meaning "hospital" in Persian).
After the Hospitaler knights left their headquarters on the Temple Mount, they took up residence in the Muristan.
The order was founded during the First Crusade and is also known as the Order of St. John.
These knights, entrusted with caring for the health of Crusaders and pilgrims, built a hospital here.
We learn from the inscription, "the Grand Priory in the British Realm" followed their example in more recent times.
