Dove's Eyes Ketubah
Dove's Eyes Ketubah - This illustration showing King Solomon and his beloved is inspired by a verse from Song of Songs (Chapter 4; Verse 1) “Behold, thou art fair, my love, behold, thou art fair, thou hast dove’s eyes within thy locks”. Tamar has successfully tried to capture the essence of this verse which describes the pure and innocent love between the couple depicted in this scene. The doves sitting on the branch above the loving couple metaphorically describe this untainted love.
All of Tamar’s Ketubas are printed in silkscreen using 15 – 25 color separations (each color is printed separately) on Arches paper. The landscape and animal imagery, together with the vivid colors and light in Tamar’s work are a reflection of the artist’s imagination and influence of the Holy Land from which these Ketubas originate. Japanese paper cut technique has been used in order to achieve the unique and rich appearance.
