Love Is No Illusion Ketubah
by Susanne McGinnis
Lovingly painted in the brilliant Mediterranean and Middle Eastern colors of ultramarine blue, rose red, turquoise, and warm gold, this Ketubah is a decorative mandala whose circular structure is the symbol of eternity. The wedding vows are permanently displayed at the center of a visual illusion of three dimensional movement, a reminder of the importance of stability and tradition in the midst of a world in flux. The ornamental motifs are derived from graceful curving Turkish floral patterns.
