Tree of Life by Jacques Lipchitz
Jacques Lipchitz was a Jewish Cubist sculptor who counted Picasso as one of his BFF's. Lipchitz escaped the Nazi occupation of Paris in the 40's and moved to New York where he devoted himself more fully to his faith and his art. The Women's Zionist Organization of America commissioned this specific piece of art to commemorate the creation of the "Tree of Life" monument on Mt. Scopus in Jerusalem. Lipchitz's tree of life is a cubist creation that looks like a tree in the shape of a body, or perhaps a body in the shape of a tree. Either way you look at it, it's life-affirming.
