Ketubah Description

View Ketubah Details

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet." ~William Shakespeare The rose is an ancient symbol of love and beauty. It has inspired romantics in art and literature throughout the ages to paint, to write poetry, and to express their love. Here, roses are intertwined with ribbon in an unending circle, symbolic of unity, perfection, and the cycles of life. The soft pink and green hues combined with painterly brushstrokes and pen and ink details, make this watercolor design a wonderful, and romantic way to start your art collection together.
