Originally from England, artist Archie Granot settled in Jerusalem in 1978 and created his first papercut shortly thereafter. Granot sites the city of Jerusalem as his greatest inspiration and often incorporates Jewish text as an unexpected element in his designs. The Shalev Ketubah showcases the artist’s masterful use of color, bringing together the vibrant blue, parchment yellow, and unexpected touches of red. “Shalev,” in Hebrew, means “serenity”, and this ketubah captures that feeling of tranquility.
The texts that surrounds the ketubah read: "...and when I went out towards you, I found you coming towards me ...ever since you were the home of love for me, my love has lived where you have lived." (R. Yehuda Halevi - Love Poems) and "Where perfection exists happiness is blessed; and there is no greater perfection than the marriage of bride and groom." (Maharal of Prague) This is a limited edition print of an original papercut.
