This stunning serigraph is based on the Hoshen - breastplate - worn by the High Priest in the Temple. It has twelve different colored stones: each one represents one of the twelve tribes. They are set on a firy yellow-red background, which is in turn set on a deep blue-black and decorated with a range of Jewish symbols and decorative motis. It is surrounded by a stained glass window-esque array of decorative panels filled with Jewish and Hebrew images.
Israeli-born artist Victor Shrem trained as a ceramicist, but after several years working in pottery began creating the pieces he is most known for in the Jewish world: paintings. Using a combination of watercolor and oil paints, Shrem creates vivid Judaica and Jerusalem themed pieces which are stained-glass window-like in style and mesmerizing to behold. His work has been exhibited in many galleries around the world, and is found in several important private collections.
