Revisiting an older piece
One of the things that really distinguishes Minyan Hadar is the deep relationship they have with the words of the traditional prayers. So, in creating this piece I asked the members of the community to tell me the biblical verses that linked them as individuals either to community or to Torah. I painted each of those verses onto the the silk shantung of the mantle. It's a quiet piece.
The mantle looks beautiful with the parochet.
Several of the verses they chose came from the Sh'ma.I painted those verses into the center of the mantle into a sort of "breastplate"
I loved being able to see these two pieces, not designed together, working so well with one another.
