Comments:
The sign belongs to the series of signs depicting outdoor sculptures throughout the city of Tel Aviv - Jaffa.

About the Artist: Y D Gordon - Jacob Dov Gordon - Born in Russia, immigrated to Israel in 1920 and in 1925 after poverty and famine emigrated to the United States.

About the Sculpture : The sculpture was made at the request of the street founder Meir Getzel Shapiro in recognition of his wife Sonia in front of their residence - a gesture that was unsuccessful. After reading a street for her name and a street for his name, it angered Mayor Dizengoff, who ordered the signs removed, calling the streets an alleyway and an anonymous alley (Plotit, Almonit).
