Vadi Nisnas Tips (3)

Wadi NisNas, street art II

Begin your tour of Wadi NisNas at the entrance sign, put there in three languages, Hebrew, Arabic and English the two official languges of Israel and the third "unofficial"....
This second picture looks like a modern type of ad campaign, but it is NOT, the artist who painted is has signed his name. The streets of this old section of Haifa are very narrow, before the time of cars so you will find some steep and narrow. We also found this very singular mode of access to a rooftop apartment, a set of stairs, then another different set of stairs and last but by no means least, a LADDER to help out.
Okay this last picture does not show "art" but we did very much enjoy it. The sign says in Hebrew "Salon PiPi For Styling"...now the word PiPi is spelled Pe Yod Pe Yod (the Hebrew letters), so you could pronounce them FeeFee or PeePee, take your pick...we decided on the less cultured pronunciation of PeePee (which in many languages means to "take a wee". ^O^

Wadi NisNas, street art I

Wadi NisNas is a must if you enjoy art, sculpture or just "cultural identity"...here there are art competitions that spill out into the streets and many of the local artists "plant" their works in the streets or on the walls of this area in the lower part of Haifa. As you can see from these pictures the art varies from the stone mortar and pestle, ceramic wall decoration, metal tree, and marble sheep all the way to the upside down coffee table complete with coffee, cups and accessories planted on the ceiling of a private home.
