In the painting, Theodor Herzl, the father of Zionism, is standing on the balcony in the city of Basel, surrounded by illustrations embodying the realization of his dream in Israel.
The original artwork signed by the artist was hung in the President’s office, in the presence of Kadishman’s children and grandchildren.
President Rivlin said: "I am proud to display the work of such a meaningful artist in the President’s Residence. It is a great honor for us. It is a deeply moving work, rooted in the Israeli experience."
