Ketubah Description

View Ketubah Details

This Ketubah draws on the innovative photocollage technique in its design. The anemone is a brilliant color of red that is seen everywhere throughout Israel in the fall, when the weather is glorious. The red color is joyful and of course represents love, and the flower itself has a bright positive attitude as the buds and blooms bounce in the breeze, their heads held tall. The circular text became a ring, a natural version of the wedding rings of the Medieval Jewish ceremonies.
