This rose is an outstanding piece of art, hand-sculpted by an Israeli artist. The rose sculpture’s base is shaped as the map of Israel, and its stem is attached to the base in the town of Sderot, where most of the rockets have landed. In this way the rose literally “grows” from the place of destruction. Display this piece anywhere in your home as a symbol of beauty, hope, and faith.
The Short and Long Stemmed Rose flowers bear a close resemblance to the actual metal of the rockets. While they are molded, twisted and beautifully shaped, they are thicker and a bit more “raw” than some of the other styles.
‘Rockets into Roses’ products are unique, hand-sculpted works of art, fashioned by metal sculptor Yaron Bob, from actual rockets that landed in Israel. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind, hand-made, limited edition collector’s item. They are true pieces of history – living proof that Israel has endured thousands of missile attacks for so long. The artist has literally transformed instruments of death, weapons of war, into objects of great beauty and meaning, representing love, growth, and great hope for a peaceful future. He has created modern day versions of “swords beaten into plowshares.”
A signed and numbered certificate of authenticity accompanies each piece, attesting to the fact that the art was created from actual kassam rockets.
With each purchase you are helping to protect the people of Israel from future rocket attacks, as a portion of the proceeds goes towards building above-ground, portable bomb shelters in southern Israel.
