Celestial Jerusalem Ketubah
by Mickie Caspi
A pastiche of color and texture, this fanciful rendition of Jerusalem is blessed by doves of peace. The timeless quotes “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine” & “I have found the one in whom my soul delights” (from the Song of Songs) capture the love and tenderness of the bride and groom. Gold foil accents highlight the artwork and accentuate the centrality of the marriage vows at the beginning of the couple’s life together.
