This is the artwork of Ram Katzir. I helped by making the large model of the acorn in the foreground. We made the enlargement from a block of polyurethane foam. From this a mold was taken and seven copies cast in bronze, of both the original acorn and enlarged form. The small originals were displayed in identical configuration to the large ones, the small ones inside, on an office windowsill, some stories above ground. The large acorns were placed about an inner garden. viewed from inside, the small acorn is identical in size to the much further removed/ external acorn. View Ram Katzir’s beautiful site:
