This poster captures much of what many consider the best of Israeli aesthetics: modernist, colorful, and simple but powerful lines. The poster shows a beautiful young girl dancing folkdance style; with her large dark eyes and black hair she is the personification of modern Israel. Disturbingly, however, she has no mouth. In the upper right-hand corner is a group of disembodied mouths, symbols, perhaps of the victims of the Holocaust, mute but eloquent witnesses to Israel’s right to exist. Other Holocaust symbols woven into the imagery of this poster, such as the barbed-wire fence symbolic of the Nazi concentration camps, lend support to this reading of the poster’s iconography.
