STATEMENTS: Medialia Gallery & The Ethyr Presents: Aim, Destroy, Transform: Play for Change Toy Show :: November 2017 :: NYC :: A Piece of History by Asaf Harari

Although statesmen figurines are not something new, the figures which I've created are the first statesmen figurines in Israel, part of the Middle East, probably one of the most deadly conflict zone in the world. 

This dissonance between the pure purpose of the objects (toys) and the the narrative they represent (the old and ongoing fight for the state of Israel) makes you wonder about questions of identity, nationalism and the modern merchandising.
