Hadas Papercut Ketubah
The Hadas (Myrtle Leaves) Ketubah, in its simplicity of design, is an elegant and sophisticated artwork. The myrtle leaf — a symbol of love and marriage — spirals outward and continuously encircles the ketubah text. With each circle the myrtle leaves grow larger and stronger, symbolic of the expansive nature of the bride and groom's ever-deepening love.
Clarity of form and color, combined with succinct visual imagery render a ketubah of grace and refinement. The Hadas is a giclee print and paper cut, embellished with hand applied 24-karat gold leaf.See This Ketubah
A lovely serenity is the pervasive feeling of this remarkable work. The leaves of graceful trees flanking the text, are cloudlike and ethereal, while the multi-layered construction of the paper cut create a perception of depth and distance. This unique ketubah with the words from Hosea: 2:21 I betroth you forever, I betroth you in righteousness, law, grace and compassion, inscribed below and the words: I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine (Song of Songs) floating above, is a bold departure from the flatness of traditional ketubah artwork.
