Inspired by the statue of Auguste Rodin: "The Burghers of Calais", the initiator David Azrieli asked us to create a statue that expresses milestones in the Zionist Journey. We chose seven figures, each one depicts and represents a period and a discipline in the history of the nation's building, since the 1920's and until these days:
The period of settlement and Aliyah is represented by the Halutz, The Independence War- by a Palmach fighter, the development of the public health sector – a nurse, the evolution of science and research – the scientist, the building drive- an architect, the develop of the Hi-Tech industry- a computer specialist, The financial evolution – a nowadays businesswoman.
The sculpture work was created by a group of talented artists at A.A. workshops (Tavnit Vetetzuga LTD).
The bronze cast was made by A.P. Casting LTD.
Design, coordination and production – Eliav Nahlieli and Programa 1 design team.
