Geometry of a Marriage Custom Ketubah
Geometry of a Marriage Custom KetubahThe Hebrew inscription, "Choose life so that you may live," and two textile symbols from the Adinkra tribe of Africa, "linked hearts" and "dynamic change," are united by overlapping concentric circles to create an abstract design for this modern art or abstract art ketubah. The Adinkra symbols were chosen because of their symbolic meaning and also to pay homage to the influence of African art in modern art. All together, the design creates a blessing for this couple from the artist - may you choose life together, hearts connected while keeping the ability to learn and change. Images 2-4 are earlier designs for this project.
