Since 1976, artist Miriam Karp has been creating vibrant, unique ketubahs. She holds a Master of Fine Arts in Painting from Indiana University in Bloomington and has been awarded two National Endowment for the Arts awards for her paintings. Author Anita Diamant featured Karp in her book, The New Jewish Wedding
. You can find her artwork in private and public collections in the U.S. and abroad. The Wedding Dance ketubah showcases this artist's ability to transport the viewer to another place and time. Layers of ochre washes lend a vintage, dreamy feel to this piece, while a bride and groom seem to float together as they see nothing but each other. Spots of light bring to mind the chandeliers of a ballroom, but all we notice is the blissful couple in each other's arms. The verse around the ketubah, from the Baal Shem Tov, reads: "From every human being there flows a light that reaches straight to heaven, and when two people who are destined to be together find each other, their streams of light flow together and a single, brighter light goes forth from their united being."
