Rose Window Ketubah
The unearthly beauty of stained glass lies in its ability to yield colored light. The depths of colour captivate the mind with their luminescent intensity. Stained glass is a surface to look both “through” and “at,” bringing a paradoxical dimension to each panel; we can, in a sense, see through to another world. This ketubah design is based on traditional rose window stained glass architecture found in historic sanctuaries. The central panel, the circle and star, is an abstract kaleidoscope shape with a Mogen David centerpoint. Its sunburst expansion invites one to contemplate the essence of growth. In a canopy above the central panel wild roses intertwine in the living symbol of a chuppah. Two peacocks support the base of the vine, symbols of the soul of bride and groom. Adorning the supporting panels, two trees of life stand as testimony to the fruitful outcome of this happy covenant. Limited Edition Illuminated Hebrew Manuscript Lithograph.
