MAGNIFICENT AND IMPORTANT JUDAICA
416. AN IMPORTANT SCULPTURE BY ZELIG SEGAL (1933 – 2015). Israel, 2003. LET THERE BE LIGHT. Large square base. With applied pegs that spell out â€œlet there be light” in Braille. Segal forms an interesting paradox, while the sighted viewer does not understand the pegs that spell out â€œlet there be light”, a blind person can read the words, yet does not see light. The identical sculpture was exhibited in the Israel Museum (February 22 – August 13, 2005) and was the winner of the first prize in 2008 in Culture and Continuity, the Jewish Museum. 10.8” x 9.1” x 4”.
