Rav Ovadia Yosef
Original 18.2 x 18.2 x 1
By Ben Zion Art
This framed artwork of Rav Ovadia Yosef is rendered in laser cut stainless steel on a background of black acrylic.
The metal portrait takes on the form of an attractive semi-abstract, modern painting where positive and negative spaces are well thought out and completely in balance. In an attempt to decode the form and to understand it’s meaning, the viewer is drawn closer to the work.
Rav Ovadia Yosef was an Iraqi-born Talmudic scholar, a posek, the Sephardi Chief Rabbi of Israel from 1973 to 1983, and a founder and long-time spiritual leader of Israel’s ultra-Orthodox Shas party.
