This papercut design includes "I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine" in the olive branches above, and goes on below amid their roots, "who pastures among the lilies" (the rest of the quotation). Around the outside, framing the piece, are additional quotations from Song of Songs. In the lower left corner, the Alhambra rises above a countryside with small houses strewn throughout.
The couple's initials are hanging from the "weeping willow" below.
The town name "Granada" actually means "pomegranate" (from its Latin name, punica granatum).
Approx. 18"x24" image size.
All my ketubahs and wedding certificates are custom made. I do the background watercolor (ink wash) painting, the papercut design and cutting, and the calligraphy myself. I can work with any text you give me, in any language, and I love to include images and symbols that are special to you in the papercut or calligraphic design. I will work with you to develop your dream ketubah or wedding certificate. Also, if you happen to be in the NYC area, I would be happy to meet with you to show you some examples of my work.
My ketubahs and wedding certificates are not prints: they are actual original paintings onto which I write, in calligraphy, your text. This is different from pre-printed ketubahs and certificates you see that are "personalized" simply by adding your names, place, dates into a blank slot.
Please convo me if you are interested in custom artwork of this kind. You can see other samples of my work on my website (http://www.jerise.com).
