Klaf Yashan Gold Leaf
Art By Enya Keshet
A facsimile of an original parchment ketubah, this is an intricate turquoise pen-line that covers areas with versatile, embroidery like, dreamy illustration.
The style of the work derives from the 15th Century Lisbon Judaic Manuscript workshop that produced some of the world’s greatest books.
The central verse is “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine” of the Song of Songs, 3:6.
Surrounding it is the vow to remember Jerusalem, “If I forget thee, O Jerusalem…”, from Psalms 137.’, and “Keep me as a seal on your rm as the seal on your heart, for love is as fierce as death, Many waters will not quench it and rivers will not wash it away”from Song of Songs, 8:6
The outer verse is taken from the 7 Blessings of the Marriage.

Gold & Silver
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.
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.
