Marrakesh Mezuzah (Brass)
Ornate and elegant, the motifs on this brass mezuzah were inspired by a Hanukkah lamp from nineteenth-century Marrakesh, Morocco. The Jewish artists of Morocco, whose roots lay in pre-expulsion Spain and Portugal, often integrated these different cultures in their work, combining arabesque tracings, floral motifs, stars of David, and latticework.
An enduring symbol of safety and protection for all who dwell within a home, a mezuzah consists of a prayer scroll in a decorative case, which is affixed to the front door jamb (and sometimes to interior doorposts as well). They make an especially good gift for a wedding or housewarming.
