Auctioned in support of the Palestine Children's Relief Fund
(As-Sakhra - The Rock)
The sculpture is based on a section of the interior of the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, one of the most outstanding artistic achievements of the Middle East and a symbol of National and cultural identity for many Palestinians today. In addition The Rock is a metaphor for strength, and was the choice of title for this sculpture in recognition of the resilience
of the Palestinian people, and their determination to remain in their homeland in the face of overwhelming hardship.
