This charcoal drawing depicts a plant in a cheap plastic hanger, recognizable from greenhouses throughout the country selling their goods. The hanger transposes the drawing of the plant, beautifully rendered in itself, from the context of an elegant observation of botany to a cultural portrait of a society. The hanger is typical of the Israeli landscape, and Zohar’s focus on this mundane detail bestows on the entire scene symbolic content: the plant, casually left in its hanger, is nevertheless thriving. Tough and resilient, it is made for survival; like the Israelis themselves.
