Who put a giant bra on a famous Tel Aviv (Israel) statue?
As part of Breast Cancer Awareness month, one of Tel Aviv’s most famous statues, the discs in Habima Square, have been decked out in a giant pink bra. The artists who created the biggest bra in the Middle East say: ‘As two nutcases who love challenges in the street and in all shapes and sizes, we said – of course it’s possible.’
The famous statue in Tel Aviv’s Habima Square has a new feature: An enormous pink brassiere, with each “cup” measuring five meters across. The garment will temporarily grace Moshe Kadishman’s work in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.

The stunt is the initiative of the non-profit organization One out of Nine, which works to call on all women aged 30 and above to go and get checked for breast cancer. The “new” statue has generated much interest from passers-by, who stop and photograph the installation.

My name is Zahi Shaked
In 2000 I became a registered liscenced tourist guide.
My dedication in life is to pass on the ancient history of the Holy Land.
Following upon many years of travel around the world, which was highlighted by a very exciting emotional and soul-searching meeting with the Dalai Lama, I realized that I had a mission. To pass on the the history of the Holy Land, its religions, and in particular, the birth and development of Christianity.
In order to fulfill this “calling” in the best way possible, I studied in depth, visited, and personally experienced each and every important site of the ancient Christians. I studied for and received my first bachelors degree in the ancient history of the Holy Land, and am presently completing my studies for my second degree.(Masters)
Parralel to my studies, and in order to earn a living, I was employed for many years in advertising. What I learned there was how to attract the publics attention, generate and, increase interest, and assimilate information. All this I use as tools to describe, explain and deepen the interest in the sites that we visit. From my experience, I have learned that in this way, the Holy Land becomes more than just history, and that the large stones that we see scattered about in dissaray, join together one by one until they become – a Byzantine Church. This also happens when I lead a group of Pilgrims in the Steps of Jesus. We climb to the peak of Mount Precipice, “glide” over the land to the Sea of Galilee, land on the water and “see” the miracle which enfolds before us. This is a many faceted experience. Not only history which you will remember and cherish, but an experience which I hope will be inplanted in your hearts and minds, and will accompany you all the days of your life.
