Many Kenyan’s visit Israel as a form of a Christian pilgrimage trailing the footsteps of Moses and Jesus. Before coming to Israel, Kabiru heard many colleagues in his community talk about the Famous Wall - referring to the Kotel (Wailing/Western Wall). This C-Stunner is made up of vertical beads blocking out light like blinds representing the Famous Wall. The cage-like structure covers the face almost entirely representing strong force when visiting the Kotel.
