The Suspended Orange Tree at Jaffa
The artist Ran Morin has created this amazing work of art in Jaffa entitled ’Orange Suspenda.’ The orange tree’s soil and root system are encapsulated by a planter that resembles a seed. The tree is modestly fed by an inconspicuous drip system and continues to grow and put forth fruit. According to Morin, his work of art represents the juxtaposition of man and nature. Symbolically, however, it also represents for some as Israel’s rebirth as a nation and triumph over sand and wasted lands, having since the late 1800s turned the ancient derelict lands into a forward-thinking, agricultural society.
