One of the best meals I had in Israel was a lunch with Naama Steinbock and Idan Friedman (Reddish Studio). After the meal they gave me this beautiful handmade sculpture. It’s actually a creature from Jewish folklore called a Golem, and it’s made entirely of mud.

If you jump over to their site you’ll see they have quite a diverse portfolio of work. One of my favourite pieces is the “Buttercup” – a spontaneous picnic dress.

  • I love the Golems. That dress and the photo of it are vivacious! Have an excellent day! 😀

    ….similar to the myth of adam being created from dust or mud………Golems can be created in the same way.

    In modern jewish stories a Golem can be controlled,to do the biding of its master….but it is naturally hostile to people.

    But i think your golem is safe ….as to make a golem magic work Hebrew words or prayers must be inscribed on the golem…or on paper and placed in their mouth!!!!

    ……mind you …I would never turn my back on a Golem!!! ….you never know!! ….;-)
