Efrat Natan is an Israeli artist.
Efrat Natan grew up on Kibbutz Kfar Ruppin in the Beit She'an Valley. She studied with Raffi Lavie. Her art was influenced by life on the kibbutz and utopian ideals. Her sculpture "Swing of the Scythe" (2002) is in the permanent exhibition of the Israel Museum. Composed of scythes arranged in a circle, the work draws on Natan's childhood memories growing up on a kibbutz as well as the myth of the Zionist pioneer, symbolizing the renewed relationship between the Jews and the land.
