The ink-line decoration and the calligraphy and micrography on this ketubah follow the work of the Lisbon Judaic workshop of the 15th Century, which was active until the expulsion of the Jews from Spain and Portugal. The workshop in Lisbon brought the art of decorated Judaic manuscripts to its peak and made some of the famous great books, like the Lisbon Bible. In the calligraphic band: the traditional seventh blessing of the marriage. In the micrographic border: five chapters of the book of the Song of Songs.

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.
