Gedaliah Ben Zvi born in Czechoslovakia in 1925. in a Polish concentration camp and escaped in 1945. He hid in the forests of northern Poland for weeks waiting to be liberated by the Russian army. At the end of the war he was detached from reality, hurting and looking for stability, family and national ideals. He came to Israel and from 1954 worked in Ein Hod, and artists village he helped establish on the Carmel Mountains near Haifa. He works in many media; sculpture, painting, tapestry, and print. His bronze sculpture “The Family” was a gift from the artist. It is in the Louis H. and Madlyn Barnett Rehabilitation Garden at Mt. Scopus. Split heads are characteristic of his sculptural figures. Ben Zvi said “ I am asked many times about the meaning of the split head in my sculptures and my explanation based on creative thinking is quite simple. The power to have an Open Head to new ideas and understandings is shown in a clear statement but also indicates the relation of each figure to the other by the direction of the head. It is known that the artist doesn’t just copy the reality of nature but ads his philosophical statement to his works”.
