Sculptures Garden, Haifa District, Israel
The Sculpture Garden, also known as Mitzpor HaShalom meaning “Vista of Peace”, displays twenty-nine beautiful bronze sculptures created by Ursula Malbin.
Ursula Malbin was born in Germany in 1917. She fled from Germany in 1939, met the sculptor Henri Paquet in Geneva, married him in 1941 and began sculpting in Switzerland. She bought a home in the Ein Hod Artist’s Village in 1966 and now splits her time between Switzerland and Israel.
Since 1978 Ursula Malbin donated the twenty-nine sculptures that are displayed in the garden and this park is actually the first park in the world that is dedicated to the works of a single sculptures. The Sculpture Garden has a stunning view of the Haifa bay, the hills of Galilee and Lebanon.
