Leaning limestone

.

And what is next to "The Antiquarian Book Shop" we saw in yesterday's post, out in the Israel Museum's art garden?
This.
This thing of limestone and steel cable.

Benni Efrat, an Israel artist born in Lebanon in 1935, made it in 1978.
It's name?
"Extrapolations."

Ciel, could be! And not only with regard to the leaning aspect. Uh oh, I've been brainwashed about Pisa by VP. :)

Hi dear Dina♥ Back to normal conditins what beautiful snow you had. Snow suits beautiful Jerusalem. As always I love all your photos and stories from Jerusalem. I always feel special to live in a country with such a history. Hugs

Dina said...

Shalom Tina. You are so right. You and I are so lucky to live in a country with such special history.
