" A land of wheat and barley and vines and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of olive oil and honey." This quote from Deuteronomy 8,8 describes the seven species of the Land of Israel. The pomegranate is a popular symbol for wisdom and good deeds, prosperity, fertility and happiness. Israeli artist Miriam Hirszowicz designed this clever card stand shaped as a pomegranate. The two halves are magnetized and stick very tight to the base. You can stand the pomegranates halves to hold as many or as little card as you wish.
This piece was created from sterling silver by an electroforming process- a sophisticated contemporary art using electrochemical means to form a hollow metallic body.
~ This unique artwork should be treated with care and not be exposed to extreme heat. Gentle buffing with silver cloth can always quickly restore the high gloss. Dropping the piece can result in dents. The black base will get slightly scratched when position of the two pieces is changed frequently.
~ This card stand measures 4.5"W x 3.5"D(Base) x 3"H.
