The shape of the Magen David is so obvious to the ordinary Israeli, that he does not stop and wonder on its secrets, just as he does not stop and wonder on his own identity, until he finds himself in a foreign country, full with gratitude that he was not born there, in the Diaspora, subject to the whims of his haters.
In my website, "Star of David“, I published thousands of pictures in which the shape of the six-pointed star surprised me. When I commenced this voyage I didn't know that the six-pointed star is so important to Christians, Moslems, Indians, and other religious people. I did not know that thousands of artists and graphical designers dealt with it creatively. I didn’t know that so many researchers spent so many days pondering its history.
The more I met its secrets the more my eyes got magnetized to its appearances. I started seeing it in the forms of clouds and on road signs, in shadows, on walls, on products and gadgets, ceilings and sculptures, behind and beyond bars, hiding between the folds of the Israeli flag in a stormy weather on the background of wild blue skies.

  • 1. The shape of the Magen David is so obvious to the ordinary Israeli, that he does not stop and wonder on its secrets, just as he does not stop and wonder on his own identity, until he finds himself in a foreign country, full with gratitude that he was not born there, in the Diaspora, subject to the whims of his haters. In my website, "Star of David“, I published thousands of pictures in which the shape of the six-pointed star surprised me. When I commenced this voyage I didn't know that the six-pointed star is so important to Christians, Moslems, Indians, and other religious people. I did not know that thousands of artists and graphical designers dealt with it creatively. I didn’t know that so many researchers spent so many days pondering its history. The more I met its secrets the more my eyes got magnetized to its appearances. I started seeing it in the forms of clouds and on road signs, in shadows, on walls, on products and gadgets, ceilings and sculptures, behind and beyond bars, hiding between the folds of the Israeli flag in a stormy weather on the background of wild blue skies.
