Levi's Leviathan Tallit bag

Levi is one of my son's good friends. His bar-mitzvah is this Shabbat, the week we read Genesis. Levi loved thetext about the creation of the " taninim gedolim ", the big fish. Traditional commentators assume that this is the mythical Leviathan.

I made Levi this bag that only hints at what the Leviathan looked like, because we don't really know what this being actually looked like. The water around the Leviathan is filled with quotations both from Biblical and Rabbinic texts about the Leviathan.
I made the center of the bag out of painted Ultra-suede. The waves were made out of couched silk cord. The border is an upholstery cotton.
I hope that Levi will be happy.
