Jerusalem Stone Sculptures Being Created at Symposium


For the rest of the month, ten sculptors will be hard at work creating works of art from Jerusalem stone, a type of rock native to the land. The project is part of the International Sculpture Symposium taking place at Jerusalem's First Station, the new facility built on the 100-year-old train station. Five artists are from Israel and five are from abroad.  None of the sculptures are planed to be of people but rather symbols or designs. Upon completion will be donated to the city and displayed in various locations. The artists are: Igor Brown, Jamal Hassan, Tami Gavish, Roy Givati and Genia Gendekman, Alexander Shestakov from Russia, Alexei Sorokin from Belarus, Jose Carlos Caballo Milan from Spain, Vincent Beaufils-Hourdigas from France and Alihim Tobias Dietrich from Germany. The project began September 16th and will end on September 30th.
