The noted sculptor and painter Zigi Ben-Haim of Tel Aviv and New York inaugurated his unique "PoeTree" sculpture and "PhotoWorks" photographs of Venice at the Sheba Medical Center on May 26.

PoeTrees are a new series of sculptures meant to be symbols of hope connecting people with nature that Mr. Ben-Haim intends to "plant" all over the world. The Sheba PoeTree is the third of its kind (-- the first two are situated in France), and it was "planted" at the entrance to the Leviev Heart Center at Sheba. Chiseled into the stone bench of the PoeTree is a verse from Proverbs 17:22, "A joyful heart is good medicine."

Prof. Zeev Rotstein, director of the Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer, and Prof. Michael Eldar, director of the Olga and Lev Leviev Heart Center at Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer, thanked Mr. Ben-Haim and his wife Tsipi for their artistic contributions to the hospital and their steadfast and ongoing support for additional projects at the hospital.

 "I strongly believe in the fusion of art and medicine for healing," said Rotstein, "and Zigi's powerful and innovative art will brighten the lives of our patients."
