On the sign:
הַכִּינָה נֶחִמָה
סיפור: מאיר שלו
פיסול: ישראלה הרגיל

"אֲנִי לֹא רוֹצָה לָגוּר כָּל הַחַיִּים בְּרֹאשׁ אֶחָד,"
אָמְרָה נֶחָמָה.
"הָעוֹלָם מָלֵא אוֹיְבִים," אָמְרוּ לָהּ,
"יְלָדִים מִתְגָרְדִים, הוֹרִים עַצְבָּנִיִים,
תַּכְשִׁירִים מְסֻכָּנִים, מַסְרְקִים צְפוּפִים.
כֻּלָּם שׁוֹנְאִים אֶת הַכִּינִים.
תִּשָּׁאֲרִי כָּאן, תִּהְיִי כְּמוֹ כֻּלָּם."
אֲבָל הַכִּנָּה הַקְטַנָּה נֶחָמָה נָשְׁמָה נְשִׁימָה עָמֻקָה ואָמְרָה:
"אֲנִי אֵצֵא אֶל הָעוֹלָם."

Translation of the text on the sign:

The Louse Nechama
Story: Meir Shalev
Sculpture: Israela HarGil

"I do not want to live all life in one head,"
Said Nehama.
"The world is full of enemies," they told her,
"Children scratching, nervous parents,
Dangerous preparations, crowded combs.
Everyone hates lice.
Stay here, be like everyone else. "
But the little louse Nechama took a deep breath and said:
"I will go out into the world."
