Catherine Trope


Size Framed: 485 x 370mm
Medium: Three plate etching

In this artwork, the artist sought to capture the essence of heritage and the profound significance of the passing of beliefs, objects, and culture from one generation to the next. The etching portrays two Rabbis walking through the enchanting streets of Tzfat, Israel, at night, illuminated by a golden, dim-lit street. This evocative scene symbolizes the timeless traditions and rich inheritance of the Jewish people. As the Rabbis move away from the viewer, their figures become a metaphorical bridge between the past and the future. The streets of Tzfat, steeped in historical and spiritual importance, embody the continuity and resilience of Jewish heritage.
