The Flag – הדגל

The fiscal flag is a piece of cloth or material attached to a pole.

The Metaphysical flag is the sign, symbol that represents and symbolizes a given Nation, Government or Idea.

We were raised by the well known saying ״It is Good to Die for Our Country”, with connotation to our flag.

״טוב למות בעד ארצנו!״

With that in mind I created The Red Flag Bleeding. Attaching 40 meter long flag bleeding to the ground. “Anti War” exhibition 1978

For each Country, it’s important to show the National Flag in various Important places. The Metaphysical idea of The Flag carries the Nation’s pride.

The Flag’ was represented as a prime form in my Anti Warexhibition. That was my final show at Revensbourn College of Art & Design, London 1978.

Flag worship can be ‘Idolatry’ as I called it in my sketch book.

“Political Assassination”

Political Assassination, a sculpture that speaks for itself. In many countries Political Assassination changed history.

In Israel, after the assassination of Prim Minister Izchak Rabin, the country changed with no recognition.

Political Assassination

I created a collection of sculptures called “The Hand of Coincidence”, consisting of 25 individual pieces of art, each encapsulating a different social and political issue. 2014-2018. Political Assassination is one of the sculptures in the project.

“Political Assassination”, a close look – People on the roof.

Asymmetrical deserted wooden cubs found in junkyard draw my attention. That was the begging of a fantastic journey of Social and Political ideas that took forms in wood, metal and paint over 4 years.

Political Assassination. 6.5 * 6.5 * 9 cm.

It took me over 6 months to work on this small cube. I found a cube that had like bullet holes. And that was the trigger! Slowly the cube became the idea. The transformation was completed with lots and lots of layers of paint… and tears.

On one side of the scene – there are bullet holes, blood and tears. Like in real life. On the other side of the scene, sadly, there were some that celebrated.

And the people on the roofs, the crowd, like lost sheep, led by the powers that created and executed ideas that led to the assassination.

The Prime Minister of Israel – Izchak Rabin, was murdered on the 4th of November 1995.

And the country of Israel changed with no recognition.

“The Hand of Coincidence” Dakar

Dakar – in memory of our lost submarine

Every year, on January 25th, we try to find solace on the anniversary date of the disappearance of the Israeli submarine, the Dakar. The submarine was lost, literally and figuratively, in 1968, along with her crew of 69 sailors. The years pass, but the memory of them, our loved ones, remains in our hearts forever.

The mystery of what happened to the Dakar can’t be described better than with these words : Lost by the the Hand of Coincidence.

In 2017, I created the “DAKAR” sculpture, as one of a collection of sculptures called “The Hand of Coincidence”, consisting of 25 individual pieces of art, each encapsulating a different social and political issue. 2014-2018.

I created one specific piece to honor the Dakar Submarine. 

My husband, First Sergeant Dan Manor, was one of the lost crew members.

Each year, we remember the loss of the Dakar, our missing submarine
