The Akka artwork, a marble and brass piece, captures a moment in a time.
An unlived moment we would have liked to experience as Palestinians who cannot travel to Palestine.
This particular moment, an everyday occurrence in the port city of Akka, captures Palestinian youth standing at the edge of Akka’s famous wall in the old harbor before leaping into the Mediterranean waters below. That leap seen by young boys of Akka as a rite of passage from boyhood to manhood.
For the young Palestinian boys living in the diaspora, this is a moment they only get to live through the stories that get to hear from their grandfathers. A lost moment in time.
