The work at Dana Gallery in Yad Mordechai is constructed by layers of wallpaper, drawing and sculpture. It is based upon Nathan Rappaport's monument of Mordechai Anielewicz. Rappaport converse Anielewicz from a slight Diaspora Jew to a muscular hero. is this work I transformed  Rappaport's Anielewicz into Tarzan. A popular figure that had a strong link to 1950s and 1960s Israeli society. Tarzan links the new Anielewicz with the myth of the Sabra.
