Ukrainian artist creates glass mandala in a Polish Jewish cemetery

Ruslan Kolmykov used small, broken pieces of mirrors to create his work, Source, for the Jewish cemetery in the Polish town of Kalisz.

The work aims to promote good relations between the local Jewish, Polish, and Ukrainian communities. Kolmykov fled to Poland after the invasion of Ukraine, and his message is one of peace, love, and harmony. At the center of Source is a Star of David: Kolmykov wanted to maintain the dignity of the cemetery by creating a design that honors the Jewish culture and its history. The Ukrainian artist spent more than a month creating the installation, using mirrors from a furniture factory that were cut into pieces before being glued to the wall.
