The Sacred & Liturgical Art Exhibition is still happening, although the dates have moved due to the pandemic. It is now running from September 4 – September 26! Thanks to the Springfield Art Association in Springfield, IL.
These Kohen Hands will be available for purchase through the Springfield Art Association for the 2020 Liturgical and Sacred Art Festival in Springfield, IL, which runs from March 28th through April 25th.
This sculpture is hand carved from basswood and sits on a cherry base. It is an homage to the lost art of Eastern European Jewish woodcarving, a cultural heritage which was destroyed in the pograms and Shoah. Kohen hands are considered to be a priestly blessing in Judaism.
Please contact the gallery directly if you are interested in purchasing.
