The Ceramic Cactus Leaf Sculpture; is a part from small series of sculptures Were inspired by Opuntia ficus-indica plant. The Opuntia ficus-indica is a peopoler plant in Israel that made Is way from Amarica to Israel around the 16th century.
Opuntia cactus, known in Israel as "tsabar" is an informal-turned-formal term that refers to any Jew born on Israeli territory.
The word is derived from the Hebrew name of the common American cactus - common sabra. The comparison of the thorny desert plant, whose sweet and soft fruit is covered with thorns, suggests that the Israeli sabra is rough and "thorny" on the outside but soft and sweet inside. In addition, this comparison serves as a metaphor for the absorption of the sabra plant in the Israeli space, which rose so well that it became one of the local symbols of the Land of Israel.
