Modern tailor


What made me upload the picture? I'm glad you asked :)

Wherever I look, something happens. It abounds in graphic elements: straight, diagonal, wavy, dark and light. I'm not sure I know how to explain why graphic elements make my heart so happy, but they certainly have that effect on me. Then, of course, there is the wonderful sign of Akiva the Tailor which made me think one of the people in the picture is Akiva. But it does not seem to. The man who owns the pole is Meir Weisgal who is considered to be one of the founding fathers of the Weizmann Institute of Science and served as its president. The other characters are from the Rosen family.
