Click here for a map that contains other items in the area

On the sign:
צפצפה לבנה
Populus alba

תפוצה טבעית: טורקיה, אירן, אפגניסטן

חגיגה בשחור-לבן: לכל עץ בשורה זו דגם קליפה ייחודי בשחור-לבן. כל העצים בשורה זכריים, פרחיהם הלבנים מייצרים אבקה. לובן הצד התחתון של העלה מתגלה והעלים מצפצפים ברוח הקיצית (מכאן שם העץ). העצים היפיפיים האלה מקשטים רחובות רבים בירושלים.

White Poplar
Populus alba

Natural range: Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan

Think white. Different white and black patterns make each trunk in this row unique. The whole row is of male trees, their white flowers releasing pollen. Whitish leaf undersides flash in the summer breeze. These beauties whiten many Jerusalem streets.

אילו ראיתאת דגמי קליפות אלו בשחור ולבן במוזיאון האם היית מכנה אותן "אמנות"? האם תוספת צבע היתה עוזרת לך להחליט? (שים לב ל"נתזים" העדינים של החזזיות בירוק/כתום המורכבות מאצות ופטריות).

[a question]
If you saw these white and black trunk patterns in a museum, would you consider them art? (Notice also the bit of color - delicate sprinkles of green/orange lichens composed of algae + fungi.)

[The fourth face of the cube]
[התשובה לשאלה]
אמנות היא בעיני המתבונן. לכן אתה, הוא המחליט אם זו אמנות.

[The Answer to the question]
