Cheech Monkey by Zadok Ben-David

Location:The Prominade at Cheech Beach
Tel Aviv
Material: Cor-ten steel

Description: A humorous reference to a popular political figure

Caption: The Promenade was originally built in 1939 as a narrow boardwalk elevated above sea level. In the early 1980s it was rebuilt and named in honor of former mayor Shlomo "Cheech" Lahat who promoted the project. This sculpture pokes friendly fun at the official who led the effort to improve the promenade.
