With life-size statue , Israeli artists focuses on Netanyahu
The 11-yard long table is loaded up with succulent natural product, wads of money, void containers of alcohol and a stogie — a poke at the endowments Netanyahu is blamed for inappropriately tolerating.
Inhabitants of the city of Tel Aviv woke up Wednesday to a shaking site: a spring up display portraying an actual existence size sculpture of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu getting a charge out of an extravagant feast without anyone else at a rambling table in a fake re-authorization of the Last Supper.
