Caption "In his attempt to unite the organic world and the world of metal, he searches for the metaphor which unites his distant past as a shepherd in a Kibbutz: scout of an expedition looking for copper deposits in the Negev, on the shares of the Dead Sea - and his recent past: the years he spent in London and other metropolitan cities, all significant art centers. In these centers, artists confronted a host of new materials, new work processes, a constantly changing world picture and felt compelled to redefine art, its domain, its essence and function."
