Description[edit]
The leaves of Landolphia kirkii are oblong and sometimes ovate and can reach up to 9 centimetres (3.5 in) in length. They are glossy green coloured from above, and have a channeled midrib. They have 10-12 pairs of lateral veins, with a net-veining that is slightly raised just above the midrib, that is pubescent underneath. The inflorescence has many flowers, which are white or creamy-yellow coloured and have a diameter of 1 centimetre (0.39 in). The flowers also have a tube that is 3.5–4 millimetres (0.14–0.16 in) long. The green fruits are spherical with a diameter of 15 centimetres (5.9 in), and are edible.[1]
Systematics[edit]
The specific epithet kirkii commemorates John Kirk, a companion of David Livingstone, who traveled to Zambezia for an expedition in 1858.[1]
The Bungo fruit widely growing on Pemba and Zanzibar islands in the Indian Ocean highly likely belongs to this species.[citation needed]

History[edit]
The borough was formed from five civil parishes: Clapham, Putney, Streatham, Tooting Graveney and Wandsworth. In 1904 these five were combined into a single civil parish called Wandsworth Borough, which was conterminous with the metropolitan borough.[1] Before 1900 these parishes, and Battersea until 1888, had been administered by the Wandsworth District Board of Works.
Coat of arms[edit]
The coat of arms were granted on 6 July 1901. The blue wavy division represents the Rivers Wandle and Thames. French Huguenot refugees arrived in the area in 1685, and the blue drops represent the tears of their struggle. The five stars represent the constituent former parishes. At the top is a long boat, with a dragon’s head, commemorating 9th century Danish incursions along the river. The borough council’s motto was We Serve.[2]
Population and area[edit]
The borough covered 9,130 acres (36.9 km2), which made it the largest in the County of London. The population recorded in the Census was:

Biography[edit]
Ben-Zvi studied at Academy of Fine Art in Warsaw, before emigrating to the then British Mandate of Palestine in 1923, where he studied at the Bezalel School of Art and Craft, Jerusalem from 1923 to 1924. When the New Bezalel School was opened, he taught sculpture there from 1926 to 1927. In 1937, he travelled to Paris and then to London from 1937-1938.[2]
He specialized in portrait heads in beaten copper and mounded plaster, which he treated in a cubist manner. In 1947, he created one of his most moving works, the monument “In Memory of the Children of the Diaspora” in Mishmar Haemek.
Awards[edit]

In 1953, Ben Zvi received the Dizengoff Prize for Sculpture.[3]
Also in 1953, he was awarded the Israel Prize, for sculpture,[4] being the inaugural year of the prize, and was accordingly the first artist to be awarded this honor.
