EL ALMA DEL EBRO, 2008 Site: ExpoZaragoza, Zaragoza (Spain) Painted stainless steel11 metre x 850 x 840 cm There are inevitable contradictions in sculptural work; fatalities, it seems, of the genre: the impression of mass, the feeling of immobility, and the intrusion in space. An artist’s talent resides in transgressing these contradictions, in responding to the spirit of the place rather than imposing a pre-existing piece of work on it. Plensa is obsessive with image in his works of art that represent the body. Even when the body is not explicitly represented, the mimetic dimensions of the work, the descriptive precision of his sculptures, evoke it. Words, have been a constant element of his work from the outset, and are conceived chiefly as an organic secretion. It seems that Plensa applies the formula described by Michel Leiris when explaining Tzara’s work: “We think through our mouths”. The first words that Plensa inscribed on his sculptures are a reply.http://jaumeplensa.com/web/index.php/works-and-projects/projects-in-public-space/item/249-el-alma-del-ebro-2008

For sure it is not known, but it is known that in the early 17th century, during the life of the educator - Talmudist Shmuel Eydelsa, it already existed. In Ostrog synagogue - an amazing story.

In 1792, the synagogue where Jews hid Ostroz'ki stormed the Russian troops led by General Mikhail Kakhovskii. The Russians took the building for the fortress in which entrenched Poles and fired its cannons. According to legend, was miraculously saved Jews. Even those kernels that have flown into the building through the broken windows, no harm is inside people. On the third day of the attack on behalf of the local brave Eliezer came out of the synagogue, and showed the king's troops ford across the river Neris, then went away from the Jail. In memory of this event in the wall of the synagogue did not render over traces of nuclei, and one of the cores hung inside the building chain. There is even a legend that this was a golden chain.http://blogs.pravda.com.ua/authors/ihelzon/4a4b78d60abab/
