This “Deep Sea Dreaming” Birkat Habayit awakens an underwater coral reef to express the boundless and bountiful beauty that blossoms beneath the surface of the sea. As an ode to the ocean, this ‘Blessing for the Home’ heralds the vitality and life of water, where streaming light and oceanic textures, hues and life forms overlay the art in a veiled sprawling sea.
Matching ‘Birkat Habayit – Blessing for the Home’ photographed alongside a Ketubah, reflecting the extension of the Ketubah design into other Judaica artwork (and vice versa).
Two blue whales symbolic of the couples’ shared home serenely float beneath the waters surface; majestically and magnificently flowing.
The initials of the couple can be rendered in a metallic silver outline framing a watercolour and sunlight dappled pair of hebrew characters
Soothed by their presence amoungst eachother, the warmth of the light that dapples and glimmers on them foreshadows the light, happiness and illumination in the home.
At the bottom of the Birkat Habayit is an elaborately constructed Coral Reef with seaweed, coral, shells, seahorses and many schools of fish of varying species.
The coral reef suggests that beneath everything there are worlds of wonder and richness.
The essentialism of all things water as being the intrinsic element of this Birkat Habayit is echoed through the watercolour painted coral reef, fish, seahorses, shells and whales. This is overlaid upon an oil on canvas background, which yields a glowing luminosity to visualize the light streaming through the water and dappling on the coral reef.
