416. AN IMPORTANT SCULPTURE BY ZELIG SEGAL (1933 – 2015). Israel, 2003. LET THERE BE LIGHT. Large square base. With applied pegs that spell out “let there be light” in Braille. Segal forms an interesting paradox, while the sighted viewer does not understand the pegs that spell out “let 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”.
