This object represents two Shibriya knives facing each other and welded at the edges. The welding point is the point where time stops for a moment, leaving space for choice. The sharp, timeless silence of the desert, gives hope for a positive transformation. The Shibriya is here used as a blackboard, with an alphabet etched on top, re-teaching us how to live as developed human beings, starting with A,B,C, respecting one-another.
