What the blazes is this?


 A strange thing in Beer Sheva.
I did a double take the first time I walked past it.
In my imagination this is how Moloch looked.

This is the other side.
In back of it you see the gray walls of the Brutalistic-style city hall.

Who can enlarge this photo and read the French?
Made in 1995 is what I can understand.

Seems uncommon right here.

brickwork art - I think it looks great and it is certainly different.

Let's see, it's been awhile and my French has gotten quite rusty.

"this work is a collaboration made by Chaim Tecgy and Klaus Silmeke. It was a great pleasure...."

I'm having a bit of a problem figuring out the last line.

It's a curious looking sculpture to say the least.

"This work was made in collaboration with Chaim Tecgy [I think] and Claus Schnehe [I think]." The rest I leave to someone with better French!

This is quite interesting, but a little hard to figure out.

... and led to a beautiful friendship (finishing William's translation).

It is striking and the fact that it's bricks makes it even more unusual!

And Petrea's. Sorry.

I quite like strange things, but this is really ugly!
