Description
The Tree of Life, a very symbolic element of Judaism, seemed to have been the central theme for a few of the artist's commissions this year and the young couple from Toronto also chose this element as the central theme for their ketuba



The couple have a love of nature and hiking and the bride asked Norman if he could somehow represent paths in their ketuba, and the artist always seems to succeed in giving the couple exactly what they want.

Norman chose the hills within Jerusalem to be a backdrop for these paths, using the four corners of the ketuba, directing the viewer's eyes to the central tree, symbolically representing the bride and groom coming together from their separate lives into the covenant of marriage.

Quotes from the Songs of Solomon and Proverbs decorate the four corners. A simple, and beautiful ketuba.
