The Tree of Creation

 At the entrance to the Har Adar forest 2003

 

The Tree of Creation was built in cooperation with Gidi Bashan, the JNF and David Efrati, head of the local council. A group of local residents got together and we carved in the forest for a whole year, in all weather conditions. The circle around the campfire and the great food contributed to this special encounter.

 

The carvers, with whom I still carve today are Amnon Levi, Gabi  Itzik Shahak, Bin-Non Yigal Zaken, Gabi Shefa, Zehava Efrati, Michael Litvak and Rachel Ackstein.

 

People who think with their hearts.

 

Yuval Lopen from Ginnosar donated the cypress trunk.
