The fallen soldiers Elkana
Gadi Fraiman designed and created the commemorating monument for the seven fallen soldiers of Elkana. For this project, he sculpted seven separate stone sculptures, each depicting one of the Seven Species (Shva’at Ha’Minim). As written in the bible, the land of Israel is rich in seven types of agricultural products: wheat, barley, grape, fig, pomegranates, olive, and date. In this beautiful analogy, Fraiman equates the seven fallen warriors to these seven unique gifts from the land.
