Saul Raskin Druze Jewish Palestine Israeli Jerusalem Antiques Judaica Painting
Many drawings done by Saul Raskin were given to his good friend, our grandfather, throughout the years. Here is an example from one of Saul Raskin’s sketchbook drawings, signed by him in ink, called Druze Guards. Many Israeli/Palestine kibbutzim and Moshavim hired Druze guards for protection. The Druze culture and religion (Christianity) aligned themselves from the beginning of the establishment of the state of Israel. Most Druze villages are in the northern part of Israel and they are considered by the Israeli army as some of the best trackers till today. Saul Raskin, captures the dress look and intensity that the Druze men brought to all of their assignments. This drawing is pencil on paper. It was framed in Israel in between 2 sheets of glass. Unfortunately the framer used 2-sided tape to maintain the position of the drawing. The 2-sided tape has yellowed over the years. It doesn’t affect the left side of the painting. However, it does interfere with a rifle and pant leg on the right side of one of the Druze guards. Also, the frame has assorted chips. Please examine the photo of the frame carefully. Additional photos on request. The image measures 12 1/2′ wide x 9 1/4 high. The frame measures 16″ wide x 12 1/2″ high. Guaranteed authentic and reasonably priced. International Buyers – Please Note.
