The controversial sculpture that Ilana Goor placed in the Herzliya Marina comprises two artistic genres. The upper part is borrowed from classic bronze figures such as the sculpting of the French sculptor Auguste Rodin at the start of the 19th century. The lower part is rebellious evoking the French sculptor Marcel Duchamp from the beginning of the 20th century, by means of a chain of cement columns composing the jetty which should curb the waves. The eagle is looking down on the observer, with understanding, as if standing sentinel. The grafting of the materials merges with the stones of the jetty and the masts of the yachts.
