David Palombo (1920-1966) was a Turkish-born Israeli sculptor and painter best known for sculptures that adorn several famous sites in Israel. Among these are the gates for the Yizkor (memorial) Tent at the Yad Vashem Holocaust museum and the previous entrance gates to the Knesset.

Stylistically speaking, Palombo’s sculptures departed from the prevalent aesthetic norm in that they tended to employ a higher center of gravity. Many of his works can be found at the David Palombo Museum, which is situated in the artist’s former workshop right outside the Old City on Mount Zion.
