Nirit Levav - Bicycle Chain Dogs

I'm back, folks! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

Our Christmas break was terrific!  Darn the chores that are awaiting though -all that unpacking and laundry!

Meanwhile, here's something to share until I get back into the normal swing of things. Only a week more of total abandonment of routine until school reopens again after a 2 month break. Then it’s back to the regular beat of that daily rhythm that we thrive on.

Using discarded bicycle chains, Israel-based artist Nirit  upcyles them to create life-sized dogs of various breeds.
