Art Kesubah Size: 17"x22"

Portfolio Size: 11"x14"

 

Micrography, the art of drawing visual patterns from lines of minutely written words, is an exclusively Jewish art form, utilizing minute Hebrew letters to form representational, geometric and abstract designs. Here, six chapters of the Song of Songs border the Kesubah, forming a Star of David at its top and enclosing small ornamented areas all around.

Combined with verses in larger calligraphy, thin ink-line illustrations and gold leaf, this Kesubah design follows the school of the Lisbon Judaic Manuscript workshop of the fifteenth Century, renovating the art that was abruptly severed with the expulsion of the Jewry of Spain and Portugal.

The words “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine”, Song of Songs 6:3, appear in gold leaf on the center. The inner calligraphic border has the singing part of the 7th blessing of the marriage, and the outer calligraphic border has verses from the 7th chapter of the Song of Songs.
