G. Ofrat, a pillar of the Jerusalem art establishment, was amused by the pretense of the project and decided to challenge its limits. He asked for a "magical- conceptual" piece, 20 x 20 cm, for one Shekel.

 

The work is a painting of the Star of David in oil on a piece of newspaper. The article under the star reports on the trial of Tatyana Suskin, a former art student who had made a caricature of the prophet Muhammad as a pig standing on the Kuran. The caricature was pasted on walls in Hebron and sparked violent riots.
