Artist's Description

On the southern outskirts of Zikhron Ya’aqov a road goes off on the right to Ramat Hanadiv (“Hill of the Benefactor”), on which Baron Edmond de Rothschild had expressed the wish to be buried; and in 1954 his remains and those of his wife Ada were brought from France to Israel in an Israeli warship and given a state burial there.

The entrance to the luxuriant and carefully tended park containing the Rothschild Mausoleum is on the south side.

To the west is a map carved in stone showing all the settlements in Israel founded by Edmond de Rothschild. In the center of the park, entered through a rectangular courtyard, is his mausoleum, impressive in its simple monumentality.

This wonderful park also has a very large herb garden with wonderful aromas and many other things such as this sundial.
