Yair Emanuel Small Wood Painted Hamsa - Wildlife
Size: 8.5cm X 5cm / 3.4" X 2"
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 design features a colorful motif of birds, deer and grape clusters in a style reminiscent of Armenian ceramic. The design was hand-painted with a brush using acrylic colors and then lacquered. Vivid and harmonious colors characterize the hand-painted wood.
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.
