The art of papercutting traces its roots in the Jewish Tradition to the 14th century rabbi, Shem-Tov ben Yitzhak ben Ardutiel, who after his ink froze, completed a treatise by cutting out the letters. Although this artwork is not an actual papercut, Mickie was inspired by this tradition to create this lovely ketubah. Quotes in gold foil.
Featured at the top in Hebrew is Ani L'Dodi V'Dodi Li. At the bottom is written I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine.
Gold foil along the outside reads in Hebrew and English "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." Song of Songs, II:10-12
Gold foil along the inside reads in Hebrew and English "You and I ... in joy and happiness, in rejoicing, singing, delight and pleasure, in love and companionship, in peace and friendship without end."
