The original of this delicate design was done in watercolors using a special wet-on-wet painting technique to give it a "mottled' affect. The border's rich yellow ochers, contrast against the green vines and purple grapes, which hover in an arch, symbolic of the marriage Chuppah. The grapevines represent Israel, as well as peace and abundance.
