Couple of Primordial Creatures by Dina Merhav

Location:The Artists's Village
Ein Hod
Size: 180 x 220 x 150 cm.
Material: Rusted scrap metal
Dated: 2010

Description: A pair of prehistoric rusted iron fantasies engaged in some kind of sport

Caption: "In the late 1980s Merhav turned to iron constructions with which her work is identified today. Indeed, industrial junk became a key element in her sculptures. In the junkyards of the industrial plants she found her inspiration. 'I was totally fascinated by the magic of iron," she wrote. Old rusted iron with previous life enfolded within, existing in its expressive power and richness of form.'"
