Vashti and Esther Purim flag

Modern Judaica by studio armadillo is waved whenever the names of Esther or Vashti are said, during reading the ‘Megillah of Esther’. It is a recently common ritual, that expresses a contemporary feminist reading of the Megillah. Who roles the story? who is the good queen and who is the bad queen? The flag has holes for eyes, like a mysterious mask, it refers to the enigmatic Sequence of events, and balance of power between men and women in the Megillah. Made of wood and paper, the flag will be launched in an exhibition about Vashti and Esther, that will be opened in Neve Shechter at Feb. 20th 2015, (Rosh Chodesh Adar)
