Stunning petite rose is hand-crafted from actual Kassam rockets that landed in Israel. What better response to terror than turning it into beauty? The detail on this flower is exquisite, from the petals down to the map of Israel, where the rose has its ‘roots’ growing out from Sderot, a town in southern Israel where most of the rockets landed. You will be amazed by this one-of-a-kind work of art!
The “petite” and “fine petal” roses have a rounder shaped flower with drooping greenery below the flower. The petals are finer, thinner and a bit more elegant and bear less resemblance to the actual rocket shell.
‘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.
