VICTOR HALVANI - SCULPTOR Victor Halvani was born into a traditional Jewish family. His father Isaac and especially his mother Bela, daughter of Rabbi Yanney, inspired in him the beauty and spirituality reflected in his Biblical sculptures. As a child he developed a love and respect of ancient Egyptian art and was intrigued with the concept of space age technology. Like other great and internationally successful artists, he has influenced many Israeli artists by his singular style. But, obviously missing in their work is the harmonious mixing of the three different cultures which symbolizes Halvani's art conception and makes his style so unique. The glory of the ancient Egyptian art, the spirituality of the Biblical stories and the achievements of space technology. ס.ש.
