A City Adorned in Tiles

In the 1920's, decorative ceramic tiles from the Bezalel workshop began appearing in private homes and public buildings around Tel Aviv. The aspiration to create a unique Hebrew style that would integrate into the period's eclectic style led to the connection between Bezalel and the city. These decorations were characterized by Hebrew-Jewish-Israel themes, such as images and characters from the bible, local scenery, fauna and flora of Israel, and Jewish symbols.
