A Special Ketuvah

This is a commission I received for a wedding present.

The couple had created a Ketuvah and these were the two photographs I worked from to create a one-of-a-kind piece honoring the couple.

Ketubah, from the root katav, to write, is the name for both the written contract itself and for the amount the husband is obliged to settle on his wife. The main purpose of the ketubah is to prevent a husband divorcing his wife against her will, which, in Talmudic times, he had the right to do.

Here is the piece with a detail of one of the dancers.   L’Chaim!!
