A custom hand-painted ketubah. The Aramaic traditional text is handwritten on vellum and decorated with brightly colored flowers in gouache. Size is 10x14
Letters made by hand vary in size and shape. Lettering done with a nib produces variations in the ink weight as the ink refreshed on the nib.
The decoration is hand drawn in ink, then painted with gouache. Flowers and leaves appear in a traditional style, similar to fashionable patterns from the 17th century.
The ketubah is prepared for shipping in a simple portfolio.
