"If I forget thee, O Jerusalem" - Mashrabiya
Stainless steel 38*38cm
Floating stainless steel letters, placed within a frame adorned with a Mashrabiya* pattern.
When hung on the wall, this frame casts a unique shadow which gives the impression of floating letters.
Jerusalem, if I forget Thee - the proclamation of Am Israel in the Diaspora, voiced by Jewish grooms a short moment before breaking the glass under the Chuppah, is echoed in our homes as well. The famous verse, in many variations, decorates many Jewish homes.
A wonderful gift to offer for weddings, hosts, new homes and Jerusalem enthusiasts.
*Mashrabiya is a traditional element found in Islamic architecture, which means lattice. It was traditionally used to catch and passively cool the wind, while giving privacy to the people inside their homes.
