On the sign:
"אבוקת זיכרון"
שתי יחידות הנכרכות האחת בשני, מהוות יחד יחידה אחת שפורצת מהאדמה ובתנועתיות שבה מזכירה להבה ואולי אף זוג דמויות.
הלהבה עשויה חומר קרמי שניכרה בארץ ישראל לצד אבנים שנאספו מכל קצוות הארץ על ידי משפחות שכולות ואנשים שהשתתפו במיזם.
היצירה מסמלת אנרגיה ששורפת ומכאיבה ובה בעת מביעה צמיחה והתעלות כך היצירה מבוטאת בכל ימות השנה, ביום הזיכרון הלאומי מדליקים אש, הלפיד הבוער מבכה ומזכיר את היקרים והיקרות שנגדעו מאיתנו ובזכותם קימת מדינתנו.

Error Instead of "edges" of the land appears the word "allowances" of the land. (In Hebrew)

Translation of the text on the sign:
Memorial Flare
Two units wrapped around each other, together constitute one unit that bursts out of the ground and with a movement reminiscent of a flame and perhaps even a pair of figures.
The flame is made of a ceramic material found in the Land of Israel alongside stones collected from all over the country by bereaved families and people who participated in the project.
The work symbolizes an energy that burns and hurts and at the same time expresses growth and transcendence. This is how the work is expressed every day of the year. On National Remembrance Day, a fire is lit, the burning torch mourns and recalls the dear ones who were cut off from us and thanks to which our country was founded.
