Fisherman Box 'Everywhere'

$75.00

A wooden box with a special lid made of Gaza boat plate.

STORY

Crossing the five-mile limit out in the sea off Gaza is like a dream for the Gaza fishermen. Gaza’s fishing boats are always susceptible to fire or sequestration if they leave the restricted area. Every boat must have an identifying number plate, but behind each of these numbers there is a personal story which unveils the difficulties of being a fisherman in this time, in this place.

The ‘Everywhere’ Fisherman’s Box is symbolic of breaking the siege, by moving the boats through their identity numbers away from the restricted area so they can be ‘everywhere’.

Select your own plate number (picture is indicative).
