Israel Public Art by Richard MargolisA Growing Catalog of Israel's Landmark Sculpture, Monuments, and Memorials

 

Arlosoroff Memorial by Drora Dominey

Location:On the Prominade, below the Hilton Hotel, near the Marina
Tel Aviv
Size: 8 feet tall
Material: Bronze
Dated: 2009

Description: A stack of bronze disks about the proportion of a person and a bronze relief portrait

Caption: The sculpture is located where Arlosoroff's was murdered. The crime has never been solved despite many inquiries.
The artist also created the book "Everywhere - Landscape and Memory in Israel", with France Lebee-Nedev: "Photographs of dozens of monuments amidst heart-wrenching landscapes forcibly beg the necessary question, if an entire society was not built here on the basis of the wrong ritual. Those who dreamt of growing into a rational reality and living a civilian life of humble territorial ambitions can, for the time being, take up the book and between one page to the next ponder on the question that Dominey and Lebee-Nadav have placed at culture's door."
