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

 

Capital by Buky Schwartz

Location:In front of the Isracard Building, 40 Hamasger St.
Tel Aviv
Size: 10 meters high
Material: Rusted steel and green glass
Dated: 1998

Description: A glass column with a flowing ribbons of steel peeling off and fluttering in the wind

Caption: The column is glass and the outer layers are of steel that look like they have been peeled away, with robbons floating in the air. Spectators viewing the sculpture from a distance may recognize that the green glass column is the same as the glass of the nearby Isacard building. The sculpture could be interpreted as a octopus-like construction floating in front of the buidling.
