Jerusalem Arch Papercut Luxe
Art By Enya Keshet
A super elegant, current, stylized evocation of Jerusalem, trying to capture past and present, Jewish tradition along with today’s spirit, in trim yet luxurious lines. Olive branches bring to mind the blessings of the land of Israel as well as that of Psalm 128, of beautiful sons around the family table; pomegranate branches form a Menorah, to bring light and shine with the riches of good virtues. This ketubah comes with gold leaf and Swarovski crystals. Verses: In the top arches, the words from the wedding song that refer to Jerusalem. In the inner arch, “if I forget thee, Jerusalem”. Under the text: “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine”.

For centuries, artists and artisans have turned to silver and gold leaf as a way to make their creations shimmer and shine. Evident in everything from ancient artifacts to modern masterpieces, the glistening accents can add an ethereal touch to any work of art. Today, many contemporary artists continue to use silver and gold leaf in their work. These metallics are celebrated for their ability to accentuate color and form through luminous details.

Papercutting has been a traditional Jewish art form for Ketubah decoration since the Middle Ages. Thanks to advances in artisanal laser cutting in the late 20th century, these exquisite pieces of fine art are now within everyone’s budget. Papercut Ketubahs are lovingly produced, one at a time, to archival standards.
About the Artist
Enya Keshet was born in Pardes Hanna, Israel. As a young woman she moved to Jerusalem, where she studied at the Hebrew University and at Bezalel Academy of Art. Her friendship with a traditional scribe (sofer) led her to the idea of combining the art of paper cutting with the calligraphy of Megillot (scrolls). Her artwork has evolved extensively from this beginning. In 1994 she moved back to her hometown of Pardes Hanna, where her studio is today. A significant part of Enya’s work is in the style of the Lisbon manuscript workshop, which flourished at the end of the fifteenth century, a workshop which produced the famous Lisbon Bible and many other illuminated manuscripts currently in the collections of major museums in London, Paris, and New York.
