We are all woven of such interesting strands of DNA and cultural/folkarts bits and pieces!  The couple who commissioned this work brought me a fabulous array of imagery from ancient pottery decoration to the colors and look of sweet grass basketry, and from a traditional hamsa to the traditional symbols of parentage in Scotland, Germany, and the Cherokee and Seminole nations! All of the colors are found in sweetgrass baskets, and the background painting is actually a blend of three of those colors. Looking at once organic and ordered, the placement of everything on the ketubah was approved by the couple and the result is a most unique document that honors their heritage and direction as they begin life together.
