El-Natan was fascinated with the order of the Freemasons and even applied to be added to their ranks (unfortunately, unsuccessfully). He would often insert masonic emblems, insignia and iconography into his paintings and works. In this monumental painting El-Natan envisions the coffin of a mason, complete with tools and hidden massages.
This painting was painted during the trial of Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem in 1961. El-Natan would go with the painting attached to a stick and stand in-front of the courthouse and demonstrate in favor of execution. a piece of history both local and international.
