Messianic Ketubah - Calligraphy

This is the big calligraphy piece I was working on. For those of you who don't know what a "Ketubah" is, it is basically the couples wedding vows and is a big part of a traditional Jewish wedding. Thusly, the text on the left is Hebrew.  The imagery is also comprised of messianic Jewish symbolism.  This was the first time I have ever tried to write Hebrew and I enjoyed learning about the language. However, in the future, I would prefer sticking to alphabets similar to English. :)

Media: ink and gouache with touches of metallic gold paint.
