An unusual and rather bizarre cast aluminium sculpture at the Ben Gurion University in Be'er Sheva, Israel. The sculpture was created by Israeli sculptor Ofra Zimbalista in year 2000. As per sculptor's web page, the
size of first coat is 130x45x50 cm, second coat is 100x40x40 cm, third coat is 165x50x55 cm. and the trunk measures 58x110x60 cm.
Various web pages have given different names to the trunk in the sculpture; Travelling Box, Steamer Trunk, Travel Trunk. The variation could be due to translation from Hebrew to English. I have however retained the name, as given in the sculptor's web page - "Travel Trunk".
Credits: I had found its Google Street View by serendipity and had no idea what it represented. I made a post about in Fun & Games section of GEC and requested information about this strange sculpture. I am thankful to Walter, BridgePlayer, Georges-S, esq. and Noisette for sending me details about it.
