Pomegranate Mezuzah by Metalace (Black)
In this imaginative, wittily skeuomorph design, cutting-edge metalworking meets time-tested aesthetics from the textile arts. It's easy to see why pomegranates (a symbol of love and
fruitfulness) have been an enduring motif in Jewish embroidery since the
days of the Temple!
Materials: coated stainless steel
Dimensions: 4.7 x 1.25 x 0.6 inches
Made in Israel.
Metalace Art is a contemporary design company unrivaled in the creation of lace metal objects.
Their designs reflect the desire to preserve the special, personal
nature of handcrafted objects throughout history. Despite the use of
industrial materials and technology, their product retains authenticity
through the handmade process applied to each item. In integrating the
language and texture of textile fabric with the stiffness of stainless
steel, their art form marries the old and the new.
Metalace's pieces are designed and crafted by Talila Abraham, an
Israeli-born artist with a M.Sc in Management Design from the Technion
Israeli institute of Technology in Haifa, and a B.Sc.T.E in industrial
design from the Holon Academic Institute of Technology.
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.
