The Israeli Lamp was donated by the State of Israel. At the top, as if seated on the cross bar, are statues of a man with an ass's head (the character of Bottom from Shakespeare's A Midsummer night's Dream) and a man playing the fiddle. Above the lamp is a statue of an owl. This is one of a series of foreign lampposts along Waterside. Stratford upon Avon has the only International Exhibition of Working Lampposts in the world.
