Book of Life

Chances are you have seen this before because it has appeared in many blogs. But not always with sufficient information. Another case where the choice between Potpourri and Art for Art's Sake was difficult. Artist David Kracov created this sculpture in honor of the late Rabbi Yossi Raichik, who saved thousands of childrens' lives from the devastating effects of the Chernobyl disaster. The metal sculpture has pages filled with words from those he touched, and also features a flurry of butterflies, each representing the 2,547 children he helped save and give new lives. The link also includes shots on the creation of this amazing work. First seen here.
