 Awakening

.The sculpture was born out of pride and timidity
 Pride for the ability of the organization to pave a road through the desert, to change a rock to flying dust to direct water to wherever road they would walk.
Timidity for feel humble due to the insignificance of humans in the infinite world; feeling apologetic and willing to compensate for the loss of the desert's quality
 
Its beginning was in a different place and in a different subject - huge fossils that are discovered during quarrying, whether lying in their demise, or moving to a different place.Unfortunately the current place was chosen, at sea height, on a small leveled platform that was created during paving/ the fossils are awakened to life with a woman's yoga stretching movement.
 
The sculpture was built with a complicated process. The skeleton was constructed with steel sheets according to a ceramic model that was scanned with a three dimensional scanner, and was brought to the sight in four large parts, where they were joined together and covered in a peel of screens and plaster unto which was poured cement. While working on her sculpture Or-nah decided to leave its top portion as an exposed, steel skeleton. This part was coated with colored Polioria.
 
The texture of the sculpture's face relates to the surrounding rocks and view line and this strengthens the feeling of awakening.
As in Or-nah's other works, the motion is implanted in the sculpture, in its soul, and opposing it is the outward motion into space and upwards.
