I designed and folded this model in mid-2023. Originally, I planned it as a typical figurative illustration of the story of David and Goliath, often found in art: David holding the severed head of Goliath, or standing over his dead body. Gradually, my concept shifted more and more towards the abstract, until I settled on just David’s name, spelled out in Hebrew (דוד). A name seems to be the ultimate abstract representation, and is especially fitting due to the symbolic significance names carry in Jewish tradition.

February 24th, 2024, marks the second anniversary of the full Russian invasion of Ukraine, which I found a suitable date for publishing this work.
