Pairs of combatants from Greek mythology preoccupy Ofri Cnaani in Death Bed. This work is divided into two revolving circles (like huge eyes) and consists of a chain of struggles. At the end of each encounter, the one who is defeated is shifted to the second circle, so that the remnants of all the combatants are piled up in this circle when the process is complete. The tension between good and evil, strong and weak, and masculine and feminine in the work is portrayed as part of an endless cycle of death and Eros.
