Psulim- Retouched internet based photo, 300x170 cm

 

The large scale print is showing ISIS warriors in an act of destruction of an ancient artifact in Syria.

The powerful image made me think of destruction in terms of creation. The composition of the photo, puts the viewer in a position where, probably against his will, he is closing a circle with this group of people.  Becoming one of them, joining a gala in the name of destruction.

 

Psulim in Hebrew, is a term used in a religious context, to point out of someone who can no longer be part of society. It also refers to the Hebrew word 'sculpt'.
