Art Kesubah Size: 17"x25"
Portfolio Size: 11"x 14"
The motif of flowers on this Kesubah, painted in a highly naturalistic manner, as though casually tossed on a lapis lazuli background, is adapted from late medieval Burgundian manuscript design. The insets of abstract floral arabesques draw upon classical Turkish design. The fiery colors of the flowers, set against the deep blue background attempt to express the intense passion with which the lovers declare their love for one another in the passage bordering the artwork, drawn from Shir Ha'shirim 8:6-7: 6.
