Hametz Pendant - Emblem Design

Awked adaptation design comp(top)

Hand fabricated; Cloisonne Enamel, 925 Silver
Private collection / 2011

The work was commissioned as an anniversary present from a man to his wife. It symbolizes the couple's wedding day, which was in the month of Nissan when the mitzvah (commandment) of nullifying the hametz is performed. It also represents a process necessary to a marriage - nullifying of one's ego in order to form a lasting union.

The feather, spoon, and bag are the three symbols that together comprise an ancient kit used to perform a sacred mitzvah of nullifying the hametz.

Hametz (leavened dough) represents a person's ego, which rises due to a perception of grandeur that evolves from evading the reality of one's transience.
