Protective and inspiring symbols abound in this vibrant mezuzah. A tree of life bears both roots and blossoms in a riot of color and texture. Each time you pass it, your eye might catch something new: a bird, an apple, a heart, or a flower. Beads, crystals, glass, and small patterned bands of metal are all enclosed under a protective layer of resin and arranged tastefully within the steel frame. The brass tube on the back of the mezuzah, capped with rubber stoppers, provides a safe place for the scroll.
