We would like to offer several kinds of artistic mezuzah, that can add elegant accents to interiors of every space.
The commandment to hang mezuzahs on doorposts of a house and on gates is given twice in the Torah. Rambam explains: “The commandment to have a mezuzah reminds us every time we enter or leave the house about G-d’s unity and proper love for Him.” Importantly, Mezuzah has nothing in common with an amulet (a special item designed to protect its owner).
Interestingly, the oldest extant Mezuzas date back to the Second Temple period.
The Chagall Mezuzah – I am the Lord thy God
This Chagall Mezuzah is certified to be an authentic and original creation, crafted by Menahem Berman and ARTA Gallery, in limited edition of 5748 copies. Particularly, the exquisite glass housing is set in a 24K gold-plated bronze case, and the unique eighteen-color lithograph, appropriately selected from the Chagall painting “I AM THE LORD THE GOD”, is printed on 220 G. Papier d’Arches. Moreover, the lithograph and case each bears a facsimile of the artist’s signature. Marc Chagall is a famous for his works with emotional and poetic associations, for his unique dream-like easily recognizable style.
“The Agam Mezuzah” by Yaacov Agam
Images of geometric figures and the shape of “The Agam Mezuzah” box form Magen Davids. Moreover, depending on the angle from which the spectator is looking at the Mezuzah box, he sees different pictures.
