This original design, painted in both watercolor and acrylic paints give this piece an interesting dimensional look. It incorporates symbols of Jewish life… the archway representing the marriage chuppah, the tall tree trunks, representing the two lives joining in strength and support of each other, as the vines work their way up individually to entwine at the top and become one. The richness of the flowering Wisteria and Morning Glories represents the sweetness and beauty of life together.
