Ketubah Description

View Ketubah Details

Part of Susan’s “Honeymoon Series”, this romantic hammock made for two was painted in soft watercolor washes. Its simple silhouette of trees at sunset incorporates symbols of Jewish life… the archway, symbolic of the marriage chuppah; the strong tree trunks and vines that work their way up to grow together at the top, symbolize the joining of the two lives as they become one.
