The natural way

The monochromic drawings are a wonder to behold and suggest some hidden paradise betwixt rich foliage and blissfully wayward vegetation.

 There is something delightfully old-world about the illustrations to Meir Shalev’s latest tome, My Wild Garden. The book, which came out in March, has been selling like hotcakes, while the originals of the pictorial complements can now be viewed by the public in all their glorious full size at an exhibition that opened at the Eretz Israel Museum in Ramat Aviv on November 3 and will close on December 1.

My Wild Garden is an intimate look at the patch of ground surrounding Shalev’s Galilean home, in all its sprawling floral glory. Naturally, such a definitively aesthetic story line simply begged to be given the full, visually artistic treatment, and that was right royally provided by artist Refaella Shir.
