The Golem is a story I have been playing with for some years now since Dalit Lev my editor in Am Oved, Israel, suggested I llustrate it. The original legend seemed so dark and sad and violent that I had an immediate urge to slightly change it. (as a matter of fact there isn't really AN original Golem story but many many versions so what the hell..one more coming)
What I really like about the subject is that it is about 'dead matter coming to life through magic...' well..isn't that what happens when we do a good collage?
