More information

Sana Farah Bishara is a renowned bronze sculptor and one of the leading Arab women in this field.   Sana Bishara creates multi-pieced work based on the women’s figure, allowing in her words, “the viewer can compose a changing narrative”.  She created a life-size statue of St. Charbel for the Maronite Church in Haifa, a sculpture installed in the industrial Park in Nazareth and work in other public places.

 

Presently, Sana is working with simple materials like clay and cardboard that “convey feelings of instability as an expression of family memories” in her own words.  Sana is represented in private collections around the world.
