Shalom, peace be with you. It's what so many amongst us pray for daily, for the peace of Israel and the entire world.
This gorgeous hand painted Shalom sign is beautifully hand painted with vibrant array of colours and decorative patterns, including a lovely pomegranate motif. A classic Jewish decorative motif, the pomegranate has been grown for thousands of years in the Mediterranean region, and is referenced throughout the Bible as one of the 7 species native to the Land of Israel. In addition, the pomegranate has some of the deepest and richest symbolism in Judaism as its many seeds symbolise the abundance of righteousness, prosperity and wisdom.
