Sculpture Park Drive : Kibbutz Hatzerim – Be’er Sheva

If you’re visiting Be’er Sheva and airforce war history and planes aren’t exactly your thing, then just next to it is a neat short drive that takes you through an open-space ‘museum’ of sculptures. Since it’s the desert, you get to see all sorts of interesting things like Bedouins, camels and sheep. If you’re driving a 4×4, then you might get a kick out of climbing desert sand dunes in the area.

 

Sculpture Park Drive : Kibbutz Hatzerim - Be'er Sheva

 

A desert… nose? 🙂

 

Here’s from the Israel Traveler:

"Derech HaPsalim” (The Sculpture Path), that is located near the Kibbutz of Hatzerim, not far from the city of Be’er Sheva in the Negev region, is one of the most beautiful of its kind in Israel, even if it is only three kilometers long. It is wonderful to visit these diverse sculptures, whether by foot, car or bicycle. Some of these works of art are quite surreal, such as: a stone cat which lies on a hammock, a giant metal piano, a few meters tall iron ant or a creature that is half horse and half bicycle. The desert atmosphere only intensifies the experience and the sculptures invite one to come close and touch them. In short, not only art enthusiasts will enjoy this experience, but all those who want to open their minds to intriguing images. There are also some old trees here, a young grove which was planted more than a decade ago and some fairly organized picnic areas. Arrival through road number 2357.

A short and sweet thing to do if you’re in the area. If you want one more thing in the area, the Beer Sheva zoological and botanical gardens aren’t too far away.
