Artist's Description

The White Rock of Rosh ha-Nikra

Rosh ha-Nikra is the most northern point of Israel on the Mediterranean coast, it is range of mountains that drops into the sea. The name “Nikra” is from the Arabic “Nakura” meaning tunnel. The seawater, breaking into the cliff walls has carved many grottos. The border crossing to Lebanon is by the road, on top of the mountain, while a railway track runs through the mountain in a tunnel dug by the British after World War II. This was the Haifa to Beirut rail that was to be used by the British army. At the beginning of the War of Independence in 1948, many bridges were blown up in a hope to stall the Arab Legions; one of them was the bridge in the center of the pass. This is also to be the border point until this day.
