The date palm is a very common motif in Israeli art. It is one of the seven species that
the Land was blessed with, the other six being: the olive, the pomegranate, the fig, the grape vines, the wheat and the barley. Throughout the years Yaacov dreamt of creating a grand version of this favorite motif. His dream was realized in 1999 with the creation of a 12 foot high steel sculpture, currently beautifying the garden outside our studio.
