More art in a Beit Guvrin-Maresha cave

EXHIBITION: Beit Guvrin cave transforms into first-of-its-kind art installation. Italian contemporary artist Ivo Bisignano is showing his first solo exhibition, “Human Forms,” in the Southern Cave, one of the many caves located in the Beit Guvrin National Park (SHARON FEIEREISEN, Jerusalem Post).

This story is about a modern art installation. Normally I would not cite it. But it ties in nicely with yesterday's post on the mysterious amatory inscription in the well-decorated Sidonian Cave, also in the Beit Guvrin-Maresha National Park. Follow that link for other caves in the area which found uses in antiquity.

Whatever attraction those caves had then seems to hold today.
