Azure Ketubah by Danny Azoulay
” I will betroth you to me forever; and I will betroth you with fidelity, with righteousness, with justice, with kindness and with mercy.” The lyrical words from Hosea 2:21 express the deep commitment of the bride and the groom to one another. 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. The decorative innermost circle is embellished with 24- karat gold leaf. Nature motifs, including vines, leaves and roses in full bloom, playfully intertwine against a background of gradient blue. Two deer symbolizing love, gentleness and grace repose in the shade of an olive tree, which is, in turn, protected by a canopy of myrtle leaves (symbolic of the marriage canopy). The words, Ani l' dodi v' dodi li/ I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine, from Song of Songs 6:3 encapsulate and complete this the vibrant and beautiful artwork. The Azure ketubah filled with movement, light and the poetry of the Bible simply brims with joy and delight.See This Ketubah
Joy Papercut Ketubah
This lovely ketubah combines a rhythmic progression of a simple geometric motif with the delight of color. The repetition of the cube with subtle variation is coupled with an interplay of the rich palette that creates a sensation of joyful buoyancy. A color juxtaposed next to the right color will symbiotically define, emphasize and elevate one another. Like two distinct colors, the bride and groom, embark on their journey in life, side by side, bringing their own individual qualities and mutually enhancing and strengthening each other by the closeness of their being.
Papercut on fine acid-free paper: hand-embellished with genuine platinum leaf. A limited edition; all ketubahs are numbered and signed by the artist.
Chantilly Papercut Ketubah
The delicate lace of a bridal gown is the seed of inspiration that spawned the Chantilly Ketubah. A subdued play of a palette of white, off-white and cream motifs dance and intertwine, creating a circular composition of intricacy and subtlety. Ani L’dodi V’dodi Li : I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine (Song of Songs5:3) is centrally placed.
The genuine platinum leaf quietly enhances the ornamentation, while the artwork, with its three-layer paper cut construction gives us a sense of three-dimensional depth. All in all, this is a piece of elegance and sophistication that will be treasured by the couple and generations to come.See This Ketubah
Blue Diamond Ketubah
I will betroth you to me forever; I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in love and compassion.(Hosea 2:19)
Long and sweeping branches of a tree gracefully ensconce the ketubah text while being elegantly framed by intricate patterns reminiscent of carved oriental screens.
The paper cut masterfully integrates natural motifs with myriad geometric patterns.
A lovely blue with a slight tint of purple brings out the beauty of the three-layered ketubah: defining the contours of the cut and enhancing its overall feeling of gentility.
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.

Birds of Paradise Papercut Ketubah
“In the cities of Judea and the streets of Jerusalem, the voice of joy and the voice of happiness, the voice of the groom and the voice of the bride”
Birds of Paradise is a paper cut ketubah of joy and delight: an artistic expression of the Song of Songs. Olive branches, pomegranates and cheerful song birds are the dominant motifs that bespeak of a life of growth and blossoming. A gold menorah protected by a canopy of myrtle leaves is central to the composition. The composition conveys movement and yet, a sense of a balance and calm.
The charming palette of pastel pinks, blues and greens is enhanced by hand applied 24 karat gold leaf. Birds of Paradise is a celebration of the union of the bride and groom and visually anticipates their full and happy life together.See This Ketubah
The Peacock Papercut Ketubah – Migzeret Illusion
Central to this exquisite ketubah are two peacocks, shyly looking outwards, while resting under a pomegranate tree. Their feathers, billowing down like water flowing in a stream, surround the text while creating a decorative border.
The sweeping organic movement of the train of feathers contrasts with the visible tranquility of the pheasants who stand in perfect serenity.
This lovely composition combines the symbols of beauty and grace with that of abundance and fertility, against a background
suggestive of our journey in life and the strength that the bride and groom derive from their union enabling them to journey together.

Ani Ledodi White Ketubah
The beauty of both letter and word, and the poetry of love are celebrated in the Ani L’Dodi Li ( I Am My Beloved’s and My Beloved is Mine) Ketubah. The art work, an exquisite tour de force in its rendering of Song of Songs 4, mimics the exquisite use of words which express a groom’s adoration of his bride. The lovely background compliments the cut and contributes to the ketubah’s strong visual expression of the joy of the new couple. Giclee, paper cut, platinum leaf. May be ordered with or without backgroundSee This Ketubah
Pardes Papercut Ketubah
Two playful deer approach a tree in a pastoral orchard. The trees dance rhythmically against a background of tranquility and peace. Although the city is close by, the orchard, like a marriage, is a refuge where one may take a moment's repose.
This visual analogy is stunning in its subtle execution. The white palette and the border of woven motifs of the Star of David give the ketubah a lacelike quality while the 24-karat gold leaf enhances its splendor and simplicity, making the Pardes a beloved ketubah.
This papercut ketubah is offered with a white background. The appearance of this ketubah can be changed by replacing the white background. All ketubot by Daniel Azoulay are printed in Israel.
