Amona Evacuation


  • Materials: Oil paint on stretched canvas
  • Year: 2006
  • Size: 180 \ 110 cm
  • Description: After the evacuation of Gush Katif came the time of the violent evacuation of Amona in 2006. Police and army forces came riding on horses with fighting equipment and helmets, The Amona people were not easy leaving their homes and it became into hard views. I chose to paint the horse in the middle of the painting as my heart was with it. I painted the soldiers and police officers as Playmobil dolls that operate by orders and one Palestinian for solidarity with the plight of the Palestinians as human beings.
