Boris Schatz(1867-1932) was born in 1867. He was sent for rabbinical studies in Vilna, the “Jerusalem” of Hebrew learning in Eastern Europe. The big city extended his horizons. After a short while hetraveled to Paris where he achieved his maturity as an artist along with fame and success for he accepted the invitation from the King of Bulgaria to become the court’s artist and head of the Royal Academy and Museum in Sofia, Bulgaria. Prof. Schatz had founded the famous and prominent Bezalel Art School in Jerusalem. Only a man with full devotion and great insight could, in 1905, dream that Jerusalem would become the capital of the Jewish State and center of art and Hebrew culture.In additionSchatz was one of the founders of the Bezalel National Museum in Jerusalem that along the years became Israel’s largest and most famous museum, the Israel Museum.His devotion to the idea of Bezalel and its realization has added to his own artistic expression. The mixture of Jewishness and art inspired his work. His preferred media was bas-relief which he mastered with elegance and power. Allowing light to play on his silver cast creations, he portrayed Jeremiah the Prophet, Ben Yehuda, Jewish woman blessing the candles and more. His subject matters, dignified and proud, were taken from biblical heritage, traditional Jewish life and faces of inspiring Jewish personalities. Schatz died in 1932 and is definitelyconsidered as the father of Israeli art.
Blessing the Lulab was created for Succoth. It was casted in the 50'sfrom the original mold created by Schatz in the beginning of the 20'th century.It shows a Jewish old man holding in his hands the Lulab and the Ethrog, the precious fruits of the Holy Land. The man is portrayed in a dignified manner, utterly devoted to the activity taken place, scenting the fragrant of the festive fruits. This is another fine example of Schatz's remarkable silver plaques.
