"Among The Branches They Sing"
The staggering number of migrating birds was a phenomenon even observed in ancient times and noted in the bible. Twenty-eight of these thousands are beautifully rendered among the branches of an ancient Tabor oak.
"Renew The Face Of The Earth"
We are reminded that the intricate chain which connects all living creatures will be renewed, with words that reflect a profound awareness of our finitude and an implicit faith in the eternity of creation.
"Leviathan Whom Thou Hast Formed"
Stretching out before the Psalmist is the Great Sea, the 'Sea in the Middle of the Earth', the Mediterranean. The vast dark blue of its waters teem with life in a myriad of amazing and diverse forms.
"I Will Sing Unto The Lord"
The Psalmist's final words are surrounded by twenty-three flowering wild plants. They grew in the fields and forests of ancient Israel in his time and still adorn the land to this day.
The precious manuscripts and artifacts which fill our museums represent more than a mere physical presence and the value of their materials. They embody the wish to create, to own something extraordinary, something memorable, something uniquely beautiful. They were designed to be treasured, to be viewed with pleasure and used with pride. Most often they were commissioned to honor one of life's milestones or to mark an event. As admired in their own time as they are today, they continue to resonate with the sentiments of those who commissioned them; love, honor, achievements, memory.
In our own time it is possible to continue the traditions of the patrons and artists of past generations and add to that precious community of Judaic treasures. To commission new works which combine ancient techniques with the vision of today, please contact the artist.
