“The Lion –Symbol of the City of Jerusalem” statue, inaugurated in the former Jewish district in Bucharest

On the occasion of celebrating, in 2018, 70 years of continuous diplomatic relations between Romania and Israel, the Bucharest Municipality, through the Administration of Monuments and Touristic Patrimony, in collaboration with the Embassy of Israel in Romania and the Reut Foundation, organized on Monday, December 3, the inauguration ceremony of the public forum monument “Leul-simbolul orasului Ierusalim” (“The Lion – the Symbol of the City of Jerusalem” – e.n.), in the Leul Ierusalimului Square of Bucharest.

The bronze monument of public forum is based on the collective opera with the same name that was made for charity purposes by young Israeli artists in order to obtain funds for people with disabilities, which was donated by the Local Council of Jerusalem through the Reut Foundation (formerly known as the Ronald S. Lauder Foundation) to the Bucharest Municipality, as a sign of friendship in a celebration moment. Given that the latter was made to be exhibited in a protected place, and also taking into account the Bucharest’s weather conditions, as well as the specialists’ recommendations, it was decided that the monument of public forum “Leul – simbolul orasului Ierusalim” will be made of bronze, in the bas-relief technique, by the plastic interpretation of the sculpture’s surface, highlighting the signs and symbols painted on the surface of the model statue.
