Spalted Maple Mezuzah case - Handmade (002)
One of a kind mezuzah מזוזה handmade by an Israeli artist living in New York City.
Large Spalted Maple mezuzah case. The dark lines lines are caused by naturally occuring fungi in the wood. The wood is then rescued and stabilized, so that nothing remains of the fungus but the wonderful design. The face is sanded completely smooth to fully show off the spalting and the mezuzah is sealed with laquer to a high sheen.
The letter Shin has been hand-inked directly onto the face of the finished mezuzah.
Accommodates a klaf (parchment) up to a 5.4" long
includes a kosher scroll written by a sopher/scribe in Israel and checked by an orthodox rabbi in New York.
