Yair Emanuel Painted Woodcut Hamsa - Birds
Size: 18 X 23 cm / 7" X 9"
We are proud to present an exciting line of Artistic Judaica by Yair Emanuel.
The hamsa (hand) shape has been used since ancient times for luck, protection, or decoration. No guarantees about the first two, but everyone will agree that you have a thing of beauty! The intricacy of this solid woodcut is simply stunning; the design features a cheerful colorful forest motif with birds and pomegranates.
Artist Yair Emanuel, a graduate of the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, lives and works in Jerusalem. 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.
