Jewish Monument (At deer park, de Hoopp park)

Burg. de Hooppark Sneek

The design consists of a structure of about six stainless steel tubes arranged on a circular concrete slab. The construction and arrangement cause the shadow of the total object to produce a Star of David on the most important Jewish holiday, Yom Kippur, Sept. 18, 2010 at 1:31 p.m. The shadow of the total object produces a star of David. This Star of David falls exactly within the boundary of the circular concrete slab. When the star coincides with the circular concrete slab, there are twelve line segments. These line segments symbolize the twelve Jewish tribes. In addition, the projected lines divide the surface of the concrete slab into thirteen planes. The thirteen sections are a reference to the religious principles of Judaism, as formulated by the philosopher and rabbi Maimonides.
