Attached to the doorposts of every Jewish home, the Mezuzah contains a parchment of Torah Scroll inside, on which the verses of the Shema, the central declaration of Jewish faith are inscribed. This stunning handcrafted ceramic mezuzah features the famous words from Psalm 137: "Im Eshkachech Yerushalayim, Tishkach Yemini" (If I forget Thee, O Jerusalem, May My Right Hand Lose its Skill), accented in 24K gold, symbolizing the Jewish People's deep and unbreakable bond and longing to return to Jerusalem. Below the inscription is a beautiful depiction of the Kotel (Western Wall) and Jerusalem Old City, and above is the letter 'shin' representing the name of G-d.
Each mezuzah is delicately handcrafted and painted, as well as glazed at a high temperature, to create a truly stunning and special work of art. The mezuzah has two sticky-back labels making it easy to affix. An elegant mix of Jewish tradition and contemporary artistic design, this plaque is a unique masterpiece that would make a stunning addition to your home décor.
Please note: As each piece is hand painted and unique, there may be variations in the colors.

Specializing in the production of handmade ceramics that bring together modern designs and ancient Jewish tradition, Art In Clay's work draws inspiration from the Land of Israel, the Bible and archaeological findings.
