Marrakesh Mezuzah (Pewter)
Ornate and elegant, the motifs on this pewter 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.
Dimensions: 4.5 x 5 inches
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.
