Mystic Pomegranates Ketubah by Mickie Caspi includes a rich design and the Jewish marriage vows in this whimsical, folk art ketubah. “May our lives be as full of blessings as a pomegranate is full of seeds” encircles the marriage vows and special glitter and gold foil stars, leaves and quotes enrich the design.
Two trees filled with pomegranates intertwine and doves, pomegranates, stars of david and the sun and moon are in a creative meld of art deco and folk art in this original design created by Mickie in 2008. Pen and ink, watercolor, gold foil and glitter (unique to this ketubah) create a special offset lithograph which was printed in Israel on archival paper.
For the B- Traditional Aramaic with Contemporary English (Orthodox) text, the two witnesses only sign in Hebrew.
The actual Ketubah texts available can be read at the Read Ketubah Texts page. You can commission Mickie to create an original ketubah similar to the Mystic Pomegranates. Contact us for further information or visit either our Etsy Shop or the Original Ketubah Gallery.
