We are proud to present an exciting line of Artistic Judaica by Yair Emanuel.
This gorgeous wall hanging is so wonderful, your living room or bedroom will never be the same! It is in the shape of a pomegranate (a classic Jewish decorative motif) with embroidered pomegranates and decorations throughout. In the center are the words Shalom in Hebrew and English.
A classic Jewish decorative motif, the pomegranate has been grown for thousands of years in the Mediterranean region, and is referenced throughout the Bible as one of the 7 species native to the Land of Israel. In addition, the pomegranate has some of the deepest and richest symbolism in Judaism as its many seeds symbolize the abundance of righteousness, prosperity and wisdom.

Vivid and harmonious colors as well as a mixture of the old and the new characterize Emanuel's work, which is designed and crafted in his Jerusalem studio. The principal techniques utilized encompass painting on silk, hand-embroidery, raw-silk applique and painting on wood.
