Rockets to Roses - Israel's Answer

Sometimes, Israel astounds me.

Here's an amazing site and an even more amazing concept.
"An Israeli artist, living in the shadow of terror, has found his way of transforming objects of destruction into expressions of peace and hope for the future. A magnificent rose with a mission. Each rose is a unique hand-sculpted piece of art, fashioned from actual rockets that landed in Israel. The stem is mounted on a base in the shape of Israel, with each rose "growing" from the region where most of the have rockets landed.
A portion of the profits from the sale of the roses...will go towards building shelters in the areas most effected by the rocket attacks.

From shelters. What an amazing concept. I'm going to start saving up my money to buy special. You can see them for yourself at: Rockets to Roses.
