Peter’G – Mah Nishtana (Limited Edition Original Serigraph)
Limited Edition Original Serigraph
Size: 24.5cm x 38.5cm / 9.5” x 15.2”
Set in front of an imposing arched window filled with a view of the holy city’s iconic skyline, this gorgeous serigraph features a family sitting down to celebrate Passover with a Seder. Tradition holds that the youngest person at the table sings the Mah Nishtanah – 4 Questions – and here, a young child in a pink dress is perched high on a bubble reciting the ancient verses. Lightly colored bubbles float above the table, and Jerusalem’s iconic brickwork, red rooftops and impressive domes can be seen in the background. The perfect gift for your Seder hosts or to mark the Passover holiday, this wonderful piece of wall art will take pride of place in your home.
Peter Gandolfi was born in Parma, Italy.

In 1982 he settled in Jerusalem, where he increasingly devoted himself to painting and, since 1986, has worked as full time as an artist. His work is characterized by a cartoon-like, whimsical style, bright colors and fantastic detail and often feature Jewish scenes and bubbles.
