faces: inside and out

the summer holidays are almost at an end, and this weekend took us to another exhibition - faces: inside and out at the eretz israel museum in tel aviv.

"What does a face tell us about the character of its owner? Why is one person considered handsome and another ugly, one funny and one frightening? This is a fascinating, colorful and surprising exhibit dealing with the enigma of the human face through masks, art, mysticism, Kabbalah, identikits, objects and studies of the human face."

shir hanna - ali babot

ruth schloss - old age

it was a fun and interesting experience - learning more about the thoughts and meanings behind the face through different mediums.
