Senna Kurdistan, Persia, 1848
Art By The Jewish Museum
This ketubah was adapted from a marriage contract, from Senna, Kurdistan, Persia, 1848, in the collection of The Jewish Museum. The decoration of this ketubah combines the motif of the lion in front of the rising sun, a national symbol of Persia typically used in ketubot from Isfahan, with a frame comprising a series of quatrefoils alternating with pitchers, popular in ketubot from Senna, where this example was produced. The appearance of these two decorative devices on the same ketubah could indicate that the document commemorates the wedding of a local Senna Jew to a member of a family with ties to Isfahan.
