I think there is nothing more magical than softly glowing lights on a soft, summer night, and this remarkable work of art truly serves as a beautiful example.

This stunning work of art is a solar night garden at the Light in Jerusalem Festival at Gan Habonim (Migdal David, Jerusalem Citadel).

This stunning work of art was created in cooperation with Israel Electric Corporation to demonstrate the importance and beauty of alternative energy in protecting the environment. Powered entirely by solar energy, the flowers are charged by sunlight during the day and illuminated through energy-saving LED lights at night.
