Tulip   1990

 Tulip, Heaps and Bulbs 

"…The image of the bulb conceals an ancient secret. Humans always wanted to know the secret of life, of universe, of their own existence. Itschak de Lange's bulb does not reveal these secrets. It is closely guarded inside its inner world, like "The Pool" in Bialik's poem ("Ha'brecha").

The pool has a life of its own in its inner self, within the forest. Bialik's  pool too, is a personification of man's soul and of the enigma of his life. Man himself is an enigma in his physical and spiritual innermost self. In order to discover himself man must locate the bulb and unravel the riddle of his purpose."  

Avraham Karni, 1993
