Caption This is one of perhaps 40 sculptures by a variety of artists in a sculpture garden that is a delight to explore.

Park Dina is an ecological garden created in memory of Dina Manheim (1951 - 2006). The park is a private collection of over 100 kinds of trees including about 40 varieties of fruit trees that provide a rich environment for people and birds all around the year.
The park was established by the Manheim family, living and farming in Arsuf since 1935 (today - Arsuf Kedem).
In addition to the botanical collection at Park Dina, sculpture and earth works have been installed in the Green Gallery, with some exhibits placed among the trees and others in the surrounding landscape. Visitors are treated to both botanical and artistic exhibits in a welcoming environment. Directed visits to the park can be arranged by calling  052-352-5366.

The artist said about her work: “My purpose is to express the immaterial essence of things in physical stuff: to make tangible the universal essence of the creation”.
