The bride and groom searched for a ketubah that would reflect their backgrounds and visions and found that I had crafted a text once before within the shape of a hamsa.  The groom is Moroccan-born and speaks several languages, including French and Arabic. The Hebrew along with English and Arabic translations of a line from Shir HaShirim circle the text.

The couple chose the colors they wanted to reflect a sunset atmosphere, and two tiny butterflies complete the design.  Raised gold leaf dots highlight the design.  The lettered art is created using gouache, an opaque, water-based paint, thinned to flow through a chisel-point pen.
