הפסל - האנדרטה לזכר אלפרד מונד
סר אלפרד מונד (1868-1930), הוא הלורד מלצ’ט הראשון, היה יוזם ההתיישבות בגוש תל מונד.
האנדרטה, מעשה ידיה של הפסלת בתיה לישנסקי, נבנתה בדמות דיוקנו של אלפרד מונד. הגוף מיתמר לגובה 9 מטרים, עשוי אבן ירושלמית מהוקצעת. היד המורמת אל על מזמינה את יהודי העולם לבוא לאזור המטעים, כביטוי לתקוות שחלומו של הלורד יתגשם.
המשפט על בסיס הפסל לקוח מספר ישעיהו נ"ו 5:
"וְנָתַתִּי לָהֶם בְּבֵיתִי וּבְחוֹמֹתַי, יָד וָשֵׁם טוֹב, מִבָּנִים וּמִבָּנוֹת: שֵׁם עוֹלָם אֶתֶּן-לוֹ, אֲשֶׁר לֹא יִכָּרֵת."
בחודש ניסן תרצ"ב (1932), יצקו את היסוד לאנדרטה. בחודש סיוון תרצ"ד (1934) התקיים טקס גילוי האנדרטה בנוכחות בני משפחת הלורד, קהל רב מהגוש, מנהיגי הארץ והתנועה הציונית.

The statue - The monument in memory of Alfred Mond
Sir Alfred Mond (1868-1930), the first Lord Melchett, was the initiator of the settlement in the Tel Mond bloc.
The monument, made by the sculptor Batya Lishansky, was built in the form of a portrait of Alfred Mond. The body rises to a height of 9 meters, made of planed Jerusalem stone. The hand raised to the sky invites the Jews of the world to come to the plantation area, as an expression of hope that the Lord’s dream will come true.
The sentence written on the basis of the statue is taken from Isaiah 56, 5:
"Even unto them will I give in My house and within My walls a monument and a memorial better than sons and daughters; I will give them an everlasting memorial, that shall not be cut off."
In the month of Nissan in 1932, the foundation for the monument was laid. In the month of Sivan in 1934, the unveiling ceremony of the monument was held in the presence of members of the Lord’s family, a large crowd from the bloc, the country’s leaders and the Zionist movement.
