Tea Roses climb over this mosaic arch. At the center of the mosaic tiles are oak leaves, a symbol of strength and steadfastness. Romantic and serene, this design is meant to bring to mind a quiet corner in a garden with climbing roses and perhaps the sound of a fountain. The hand calligraphed interfaith custom text appears in alternating paragraphs.
