He works mainly in granite, a hard rock that demands a high level of competence and determination. In most of his sculptures two figures are carved out of one piece of stone, creating the duality of combination and contrast. Assaf Lipschitz Untitled. Lipschitz was born into a family with a strong artistic tradition. He lives and works where he was born, Kibbutz Maoz Chaim Shlomo Schwarzberg Sundial, 1993. Born in Israel in 1956.
