Yael Ketubah - These two Ibex, typical of the forna found in the Holy Land, welcome the newly married couple in a majestic manner to the entrance of the Garden of Eden. These ibex together with the pomegranates to be found on the green “gate” which are also typical of the indigenous flora of the Holy Land, symbolize a new pure beginning of mutual love and a shared destiny. This is in keeping with the text of the Ketuba which states: “Gladden the beloved companions as You gladdened Your creature in the Garden of Eden from aforetime”.
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.
