Huppa Silhouette Ketubah
The Huppa Silhouette Ketubah honors the fine art of papercutting which traces its roots in the Jewish Tradition to the 14th century rabbi, Shem-Tov ben Yitzhak ben Ardutiel. According to legend, after his ink froze, he completed a treatise by cutting out the letters. Although the Huppa Silhouette Ketubah is not an actual papercut, Mickie was inspired by this tradition to create this stunning ketubah using the papercut motif. Pomegranates & doves repose in a huppa made of vines that is painted as though cut out of a single sheet of paper. Originally designed using pen & ink and watercolor and printed in Israel on archival lithographic paper.
For the B- Traditional Aramaic with Contemporary English (Orthodox) text, the two witnesses sign in both Hebrew & English.

Actual quotes from the Huppa Silhouette Ketubah
I have found the one in whom my soul delights.
On the outside of the artwork:
My beloved spoke and said to me, Rise up, my love, my fair one and come away. For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle dove is heard in our land.
ענה דודי ואמר לי קומי לך רעיתי יפתי ולכי־לך: כי־הנה הסתו עבר הגשם חלף הלך לו: הנצנים נראו בארץ עת הזמיר הגיע וקול התור נשמע בארצנו
On the bottom border of the artwork:
You and I…in joy and happiness, in rejoicing, singing, delight and pleasure, in love and companionship, in peace and friendship without end
