Turkish Lily – Silver Leaf
Art By Enya Keshet
“In this design I combined the colorful, elaborate flowers that originate from Turkish Tile paining, on turquoise background, with other Mediterranean floral elements which can be found even in the Lisbon Jewish Manuscript workshop of the 15th Century. The design is a printed facsimile reproduction of a ketubah that was first created as a hand made original on parchment, which originally had a cut-out verse from Song of Songs, that says:” Keep me as the seal upon your heart, as the seal upon your arm, for love is as fierce as death.” All around the outer border runs an alphabetical list of the good virtues of the blessed married life.”

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.
