A bust of outgoing President Reuven Rivlin has been installed in the Avenue of the Presidents at the President’s Residence.

The bust was created by artist Sigalit Landau out of brass.

On a plaque beneath it appears a quote from the president: “Without the ability to listen – there is no ability to learn. Without the ability to learn – there is no ability to repair.”

Rivlin thanks Landau, saying: “I can only express my pride that I have had the privilege of having my face made by her hands. Thank you, Sigalit, for being so gentle, kind and good-humored during the creative process.”
