Eliezer Weishoff is one of this country’s most successful artists, if not the most successful, at least in marketing terms. The now 79-year-old multidisciplinary creator has had copies of his works distributed around the world in the hundreds of thousands.

And you don’t have to hop on a plane to see his art. Whenever you drive past, or walk or cycle through, a Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael-Jewish National Fund forest, for example, you are more than likely to come across an outsized figure of a green and blue bird, the KKL symbol that Weishoff created.
