The Seventh Day
Not too long ago, a dear friend suggested that I do more sketching, then carving, of my own artwork. I like that idea, but somehow just do not have the oomph to make that happen frequently. This image is, however, my own design. Created for a postal letterbox ring, it is a representation of my faith.
The image is of a tallit (prayer shawl) with all the elements of Shabbat (Sabbath); lighting the candles, prayer, reading Torah, rest, dancing, singing and the Havdalah candle. The actual stamp is quite large, so when I wanted to make an LTC from it, only part of the stamp would fit. (actual size it 6" x 3-1/3")
