Rockets to roses

In America, if life gives you lemons, the enterprising turn them into lemonade. In Israel, if life, in other words, the Arabs, gives you rockets, the enterprising make roses.

Each rose is a unique hand-sculpted piece of art, fashioned from actual rockets that landed in Israel. The stem is mounted on a base in the shape of Israel, with each rose "growing" from the region where most of the have rockets landed.

A silver plaque is attached to the base of the rose, indicating the month and year that the rocket landed in Israel.

A minimum of $50.00 from each rose will be donated to Operation Lifeshield to build more shelters.

Hopefully the roses will conquer the rockets.
