“When we perceive beauty, it is because we have found that window to the Infinite”
(Tzvi Freeman, “Bringing Heaven down to earth”)
This Fine Art Box, created by Sarah L Singer, is a tribute to the Jewish Ghetto of Venezia on the occasion of its 500th year celebration.The Venetian Ghetto was born in 1516, when all the Jews had to be confined to live in one gated neighborhood and the gates were locked at midnight.
Despite the confinement, the Ghetto flourished from 1516 to 1797, ”nourished” by the constant flow of persecuted Jews from different backgrounds and all over Europe. They lived together in a prolific way, with each group keeping its own cultural differences and ”minaghim“ (traditions) thus thriving as a respectful, influential community within the city of Venice.
The history of the Ghetto is fascinating and carries a strong positive message of peace and unity for our generation.
The beauty of the Ghetto, its fragility, its nuances and its one-of-the-kind timeless message, is all percieved in the differences which each unique season brings, diverse shadows of poetic sparks. This beauty is one which needs to be experienced.
To breathe its air, to listen to the subtle noises of the early hours before dawn and after dusk, to hear the whispering of the Past and to capture the reflections of the sky in the canals, these will give you the necessary clues to connect.
By opening this fine art exclusive collection, you will experience the Ghetto in a close up fashion, forging an intimate connection with history. You will be delighted with the sheer beauty and quality of each print, its magnificence transcending photography as if each one was hand painted.
Let your heart and your mind be a receptor of this Past, where, more than any place in Europe, the Ghetto had a positive legacy.
Let us keep the Ghetto’s memory alive!
