The art of papercutting traces its roots in the Jewish Tradition to the 14th century rabbi, Shem-Tov ben Yitzhak ben Ardutiel, who after his ink froze, completed a treatise by cutting out the letters. Although this artwork is not an actual papercut, Mickie was inspired by this tradition to create a stunning ketubah using the papercut motif. The famous quote from the Song of Songs â€œI am my beloveds and my beloved is mineâ€ and all of the imagery is rendered as though cut out of a single sheet of paper. Two traditional quotes are beautifully calligraphed and added in radiant gold foil.
