The film Work of Art, was produced by the Film Service in collaboration with the Ministry of Education – Department of Culture, as part of the folklore series of the Jewish community. With the development of mechanized work of art professions like goldsmithing, fabric weaving, glassblowing and knitting are disappearing. Most often, these professions were taught by artists in their countries of origin as part of their livelihood. Today they deal with it for the sake of personal creation, and the function of this kind of art is to decorate a persons daily life and beautify his home. The narration tells the story of those anonymous artists and emphasizes the importance of preserving the knowledge of these professions and how they can integrate with the development of the industry.
