Each labyrinth is 10 yards in diameter, and is made of 2.5" x 2.5" violet and white bricks. The work was concluded on May 6th, 2003 for Israel's 55th Independence Day.
לסיפור "תחייתו" של עץ הזית שנטע גנרל שובל ברחבת בית העם בשנת 1918
During Tu Bishvat 1918 General Harry Chauvel, the commander of the Australian forces, was invited to plant an olive tree opposite the town hall in Rehovot, the town where he had his headquarter. “Know that this is the greatest honor that I have ever received in my life” the general had stated. Later, at the end of the war, he returned to Rehovot to visit the tree he had planted, before returning to Australia.
