Shofar Krakow is a 17-foot tall stainless steel sculpture made of equilateral triangles representing broken Stars of David. In September 2015 the piece was installed in an open space between the historic synagogue Tempel Synagoga and the Jewish Community Center in Kazimierz, the old Jewish quarter of Krakow. Like the space where it lives, Shofar Krakow represents remembrance and renewal, as well as a note of caution.
