Behind the Objects: Israeli Art

In the land of design blogs, we talk a lot about things.  Furniture, art, accessories... material objects.  What really makes a home's design special to the occupant, however, is the meaning behind the objects.  In this series, I celebrate the personal significance of the things I surround myself with.  The stories of my home. Today's object is a piece of art that I 'inherited' with Hubby

He brought this original artwork home from a trip to Israel as a child and we got it reframed a few years ago. The colors are so vibrant, the picture really does it no justice.  The gold background is tough to capture, but in person it just glows.  I just wish I knew what it meant!  Hubby claims that he used to have a piece of paper describing the meaning of it, but it disappeared along the way.  So if you have ANY inkling of what it says, by all means, share - I'm dying to know!

With such a variety of colors, it could really live in almost any room of our home.  It's current place of honor, however, is in the dining room where we walk by it daily.  It's a beautiful piece, but beyond that, I love that Hubby feels so connected to it.
