"...AND A BRANCH SHALL GROW FROM HIS ROOTS" (Isaiah 11, 1)
AND A BRANCH SHALL GROW FROM THEIR ROOTS
Copyright © 2002 by Avi Biran
verse from Isaiah was changed from singular to plural to refer to a
couple - two people that joined together to build a family. Two grandparents
that are solid as mountains are solid. The base resembles the mountain
with texture that looks like earth (semi polished). The text is hewn
from the mountain. The letters display the roots that form the embodiment
of the whole family. The letters provide air to the roots. From the
fruitful ground 9 flowers are growing. Each one depicts one grandchild.
The leaves of each flower are hewn with the Hebrew and English names.
The connection was made between the grandparents and the third generation.
Genetically the third generation strongly reflects the first generation.
The green color symbolizes age, and the flower top looks like the Star
of David from above, expressing Jewish tradition. From the front the
flowers look different in size (from the oldest to the youngest), while
from the back look the length of the flowers are the same showing that
each child is equal to his older generation. Each child is different
and that is why each leaf is different. The top of the flowers top can
be removed for cleaning after use. The stems of the flowers can be turned
to show either the English or Hebrew name on the front.
