Caption
    Dear Richard        
    Nathan Alterman was one of Israel's greatest poets.
    You can find his bio in wikipedia.
The sculpture was
    installed in front of the famous cafe Kasit where all
    the Israeli 
"Bohemia", actors, writers, artists etc.
    used to spend days and nights talking 
and meeting.
    This legendary cafe no longer exists.
