Itzhak Rabin Memorial, Tel Aviv, District, Israel
16 basalt rocks from the Golan Heights are sunk in the ground and signify Rabin’s roots and his bond with the land.
The stones placed at different heights, symbolize the political and social earthquake that Israel has undergone with this brutal murder. The sculptress Yael Ben-Artzi, has dedictaed this work of art on the first anniversary of the assassination of Prime Minister, Yitzhak Rabin.
Graffiti, written by participants of the Peace Support Rally, on the night of the murder, and Israelis who in days that followed came to the place, are still displayed at the site. It has since become a place to come to for remembrance and for mourning. One can not remain indifferent when passing by the sunken basalt rocks in the pavement.
