Ketubah Description

View Ketubah Details

This elegant ketubah by Danny Azoulay, with its intricate and floral design, is reminiscent of antique lace (hence the name). The subdued play of a palette of white, off white, and cream motifs dance and intertwine creating a subtle composition. Crowning the ketubah, can be seen a Menorah and Ani L'dodi V'dodi Li: I am my beloved and my beloved is mine (Song of Songs 5:3). The genuine gold leaf quietly enhances the ornamentation, while the art work with its four-layer paper cut construction gives us a sense of three-dimensional depth. This piece will be treasured by the couple and generations to come. A limited edition: numbered and signed by the artist.

All of Daniel Azoulay's ketubahs are printed by the giclee method – modern day lithography – cut by laser and hand-embellished with 24 karat gold leaf.
