Wear Your History

The Hand of G*d Pendant is in the pendant series based on Jewish art motifs and sources.  The Sukkah Soul pendants offer a connection to our past so we feel close to our history.


The pendant is made of cast-bronze using the ancient lost-wax method and is a signed, limited edition of museum quality.


Inspired by ancient coins and seals, the pendants are worn by women and men for casual or dress attire.


Rich in color, the light affects the polished bronze in various ways as shown by the photos.


Inspiration: Hand of G*d in paintings and mosaics

The Hand of G*d pendant is inspired by the Hand of G*d shown coming down from above in ancient Jewish painting and mosaic depictions of Biblical stories.


Hand of G*d in ancient Jewish art

Beit Alpha Synagogue Mosaic of the Binding of Isaac

The hand of God, intercepting the dividing line between the earthly, at the bottom of the mosaic, and the heavenly, in the zodiac, serves as a bridge between the abstract qualities of the Deity and the concrete manifestation of His works on earth.

    -Ida Huberman, Living Symbols: Symbols of Jewish Art and Tradition, Modan Publishers Ltd., Israel, 1996, p. 79


Dura Europos Synagogue painting of Ezekiel

At each stage of the action the grandiose figure of the prophet appears with the hand of God laid on him or pointing towards him; this formula, also known in western art, indicates that God is commanding the accomplishment of the miracle, or is directly participating in it.

    -Gabrielle Sed-Rajna, Ancient Jewish Art, Flammarion, Switzerland, 1975, p.75


Dura Europos Synagogue painting of the Binding of Isaac

Above Abraham, the hand of God emerges from the cloud, indicated by a circle and seven rays.  Along the same axis in the foreground appears the tree – substituted for the biblical bush as at Dura –with the ram hanging verticallyf rom its branches.  Inscriptions for the names of Abraham and Isaac and corresponding to their image are the verses: ‘Lay not thine hand' (Genesis XXII, 12) and ‘Behold behind him a ram.'

    -ibid p. 13


Lost-Wax Bronze Casting - an ancient process

These pendants are fine art bronze castings using the lost wax method.  The lost wax method of bronze casting was developed in the Ancient Near East in the late 4th millennium BCE, found then both in ancient Ur and Egypt. 

This ancient process is used today to create fine art bronzes that embody the artist’s touch.  In the pieces, you can see the imprint of the artist’s hand molding clay and modeling wax.  It is a labor-intensive process, demonstrating fine craft with 5000 years of history utilized during the time of Abraham.
