This Floating Floral Ketubah crowns a detailed, intricate and unfurling chrysanthemum floating above the text.
This visual harvest and subject matter invites associations of blossoming, nature and beauty.
The flowers gentle pastel pink colour palette is complemented by and rendered through detailed and intricate brush work of the petals and the choreography between these dancing and awakening forms.
In this Ketubah, a dusty water colour wash pink and beige background enjoys a further textural dimension through a linen underlay, giving the work an organic and soft rustic quality.
Headlining the Ketubah and running across the flower is the Hebrew word “אהבה / Ahava ” translating as Love. This element features a lace texture (the soft maroon glows that match the colour of the text).
The hymn “אני לדודי ודודי לי – I am my Beloved’s and my Beloved is mine” (Song of Songs – Shir HaShirim 6:3), a romantic declaration written by King Solomon to express the affinity between husband and wife, wraps around the flower to create a dome. This psalm evokes the intrinsic commitment, care and responsibility mutually undertaken by husband and wife in their journey through life’s garden.
However word ‘Ahava’ this can be substituted for the initials of the couple or any other meaningful word, or perhaps no word at all should that be your preference.
For an iridescent dimension to the work, giving it that extra ‘Razzle Dazzle’ there is the option of dusting it with rose gold power varieties.
When under light, this charges the artwork with an illuminated fire.
