A Rose among Thorns
A Rose among Thorns:
“As a rose among the thorns, so is my beloved among the daughters”. The verse in ‘Song of Songs’ – Chapter 2;2. The verse is an analogy to a person being pursued, but yet stays firm in their belief. Many times in life we need to keep these ideals at our fingertips.
This is not only a beautifully designed Ketubah, it is also encompassed by the above-said verse.
Mushki is an artist whom is currently living in Jerusalem, Israel. Being in Israel infuses her art with many traditional Jewish designs.
Additionally, being the daughter of a sofer*, many of Mushki’s designs are created on real parchment – the only material that scribes work with.
*(A sofer is the term used for a Jewish scribe, the ones that write mezuzot, teffilin and torahs)
Art is no longer a subject of a paper and brush, razors and blades have joined the field too! Many of Mushki’s designs include intriguing paper cut shapes and cuts.
