Translucent Paper cut Ashkenazi Torah
2013, Sterling silver Aluminum Anodize and polycarbonate
(can be custom ordered in any size)
Signed by the Artist.
The holy parchment of the Torah is attached customary to two wooden poles
known as Atzei Chaim meaning the “Tree of life”. עץ חיים is a common term used
in Judaism. The expression, found in the Book of Proverbs, is figuratively applied
to the Torah itself: "It [the Torah] is a Tree of Life to those who cleave to it".
In the Translucent Paper cut Atzei Chaim novel materials were used to create
something deferent and exciting. Two polycarbonate hand carved discs house
a custom-made paper cut with an aluminum anodized background. A sterling
silver band seals the composition A sophisticated telescopic mechanism allows
the two sterling silver poles to collapse for easy traveling.
Each work is signed by the artist.
