Slender, graceful trees line the Song of Songs ketubah in peaceful symmetry. At the base of their trunks grow sunflowers, while the leaves intertwine to form a canopy above. Nestled under the canopy is a golden menorah, a symbol of the Torah and its infinite wisdom. This paper cut ketubah is a poetic expression of the marriage covenant, rooted in the earth and aspiring toward the sublime, much like the building of a Jewish home. Beneath the text are these words from Song of Songs 2:2 3:
“Like the rose maintaining its beauty among the thorns, so is my beloved…
Like the fragrant apple among the barren trees of the forest, so is my beloved.”
The dimensions are: 16.5“ W x 20.5“ H.
