The Hide-A-Key Mezuzah
#M-16 2001, aluminum, sterling silver. Height 13.5cm, Width 4cm. Signed by the artist.
The rectangular case is made of aluminum with a highshine finish, chosen because the slow oxidation process creates an elegant effect. The top of the case is made of sterling silver. The letter “Shin” transforms into a wave design. The artist has created not only a beautiful work of art but a functional piece: After the mezuzah is mounted on the doorpost and the rolled parchment is safely enclosed within, the mezuzah also serves as a place to conceal a spare key to the house. Each piece is signed by the artist.
