The Israeli prime minister knocked at an art exhibition of him in Tel Aviv, calling it a “shameful threat of crucifixion”.

Artist Itay Zalait said the exhibit in the city’s Rabin Square was meant to symbolize the “last supper of Israeli democracy.”

The 8-meter-long table is filled with platters of juicy fruit, wads of cash, empty liquor bottles and a cigar – a reference to the expensive gifts Mr. Netanyahu is accused of having mistreated from the wealthy associates.

The Prime Minister, who appears chubby and disheveled in a dark suit and red tie, is seen eating a large cake.

The silhouette of Mr. Netanyahu is alone in the middle of 12 empty chairs.

Mr Zalait said of his installation: “You have the Prime Minister of Israel sitting in the center of the table and grabbing and sucking all this rich food for himself.

“Now he’s pretty much done with that meal and it’s now at the dessert stage, which refers to the last few minutes when we can do something to save Israeli democracy. ”

Thousands of people have taken to the streets in recent weeks, calling on Mr. Netanyahu to resign.
