On the sign:
כליל החורש
Cercis siliquastrum

תפוצה טבעית: הים התיכון המזרחי עד אירן, ישראל

מערבולת של צבעים: פרחים ורודים-סגולים מקשטים את הגזע והענפים חסרי העלים בתחילת האביב . כאשר הפרחים נובלים ונושרים מופיעים עלים שצבעם ירוק עז צבע תרמילי הזרעים משתנה מאדום לחום והם נשארים הרבה אחרי שהעלים מצהיבים ונושרים בסתיו.

[The second face of the cube]
Redbud (Judas Tree)
Cercis siliquastrum

Natural range: Eastern Mediterranean, Iran, Israel

A whirlwind of color: Pink-violet flowers cloak the leafless early-spring branches and trunk. Flowers then wither and fall as deep green leaves appear. Bright red seed pods turn brown and hang on, long after autumn leaves turn yellow and drop.

יש המחשיבים את פריחתו של עץ זה למעשה אמנות, אף יותר מאשר פסלו של הנרי מור "דמות יושבת". Click for sign's details מה דעתך ?

[a question]
Some say this tree’s spring bloom is the greatest "work of art" on campus, greater even than Henry Moore’s nearby sculpture, Draped Seated Figure: Click for sign's details What do you think?

[הפאה הרביעית של הקוביה]
[The fourth face of the cube]
[התשובה לשאלה]
לדבר אחד יסכימו רוב המבקרים: שפסלו של הנרי מור ועץ כליל החורש משדרגים את יופיו של הקמפוס. חומר למחשבה: השווה כיצד כל אחד מהם מתייחס מרחבית לסביבתו.

[The Answer to the question]
Most visitors would agree that both the blooming redbud and the nearby Moore sculpture greatly enhance the campus. Something to think about: Compare how each of these two objects relates spatially to its immediate surroundings.
