Ketubah Description

View Ketubah Details

This lyrical design is a compilation of landscapes from all over the world. Hills, fjords, wheat field, orchards, meadows, waterfalls, snowcapped mountains, deserts, lakes and rivers can all be found in this dramatic piece. The sun and the moon in the sky represent the continuity of time. The two trees in the top center are like two lives merging together. In the branches there are two doves sitting together representing family, love and peace.
