Huppa Silhouette Ketubah
Dimensions: 19.5 × 23 in
Pomegranates & doves repose in a huppa made of vines. Although not an actual papercut, this ketubah pays homage to the fine art of papercutting attributed to the 14th century Rabbi Shem-Tov ben Yitzhak ben Ardutiel, who after his ink froze, completed a treatise by cutting out the letters.
ACTUAL QUOTES FROM THE HUPPA SILHOUETTE KETUBAH
I have found the one in whom my soul delights.
On the outside of the artwork:
My beloved spoke and said to me, Rise up, my love, my fair one and come away. For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle dove is heard in our land.
ענה דודי ואמר לי קומי לך רעיתי יפתי ולכי־לך: כי־הנה הסתו עבר הגשם חלף הלך לו: הנצנים נראו בארץ עת הזמיר הגיע וקול התור נשמע בארצנו
On the bottom border of the artwork:
You and I…in joy and happiness, in rejoicing, singing, delight and pleasure, in love and companionship, in peace and friendship without end
