This is the first book fully illustrated by myself. It´s an important event for me and at the same time a very pleasant and creative process. Thanks a lot to BenZakai STUDIO and Michal Stein for this opportunity! I really enjoyed working together!
This “The Song of Songs” book was published in Israel in 2016 in eight languages including Russian.
The Song of Songs is the love story between king Solomon and a common girl Sulamita. Their story is personified by flowers, plants, fish and birds. In the beginning their love is subtle and tender as if it was a white dove. When they are close and they are consumed with passion - it´s a pomegranate. They are in despair when they are separated from each other and you see carps circling in the pond. In chapter 8 their love blooms and it´s symbolised by orchids.
Self-fulfillment is what inspires me and makes me tick!
