This glass faced box is made of wood and features a lithograph by the famous Jewish Artist Arthur Szyk. Szyk was a 20th century world renowned graphic artist and book illustrator. His works were exhibited and published in Poland, France, the United Kingdom, Israel and the United States. However, he gained real popularity through his war caricatures, in which, after the outbreak of World War 2, he depicted the leaders of the Axis powers. After the war, he also devoted himself to political issues, supporting the creation of the new state of Israel.
The lithograph is titled "Israel: A Visual Tour”, and depicts the following historical elements: Moses, Aaron, the warrior Hur, the Ten Commandments, King David, King Solomon, the warrior Bar-Kochba, who led the revolt against Rome, ca. 135 C.E., the prophet Ezekiel, who, in Babylonian exile, foretold the return to the Holy Land, The Star of David, an Israeli soldier, an Israeli pioneer and builder, "Chalutz" The Hebrew prayer, "Shehecheyanu", the prayer for newness and celebration. Also referenced here by Arthur Szyk, is the blessing of the creation of the new State of Israel in 1948.
"Praised be You, God, our God, King of the Universe, who has kept us alive, sustained us, and enabled us to commemorate this time", Israel, The Time of Our Freedom",
"If I am not for myself, who will be for me".
