There is something simultaneously classic and contemporary, eastern, and yet very western, and tranquil but vibrant about the Blue Diamond ketubah; all of which makes it the work of timeless beauty that it is.

Color Song Ketubah
In our life there is a single color, as on an artist's palette, which provides the meaning of life and art. It is the color of love. (Marc Chagall)
Luminosity and color take center stage in this synchronous composition. It is a poem of palette and hue, light and movement, and fusion and modulation.
The two-layered paper cut–with its rhythmic interplay of burgeoning lines-creates a strong counterpoint to the drama of transitioning color taking place in the underlying layer.
There is over-all simplicity to the complexity of the design that is a visual metaphor for marriage: dynamic, always changing, full of intricacy but with the clarity and candor of love which lies at the heart of it all.

The Azure paper cut ketubah is made up of five concentric circles of imagery, ornamentation and biblical texts, which adorn and encircle the ketubah’s text.
