Wrap yourself in elegant symbolic style whilst at prayer with this wonderful tallit from renowned Israeli artist, Yair Emanuel. Made of smooth, hand-woven raw silk, this beautiful prayer shawl is embroidered with an Etz Haim (Tree of Life) and pomegranate motif. The stripes, atarah (yoke) and corners are composed of sections of appliquéd raw silk sewn onto the tallit, with embroidery forming the motif.
This tallit comes with a matching bag and kippah.
Highly symbolic in Jewish tradition, the Tree of Life represents the Torah and all life and 'fruit' which grows from it. The pomegranate is referenced in the Hebrew Bible as one of the 7 species native to the Land of Israel and is mystically said to contain 613 seeds, symbolizing the 613 commandments given in the Torah.
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.
