This papercut shows a youg woman lighting Shabbat candlesticks. Above them the phrase, "Kol k'vodah bat melech penimah," .(All the glory of the king's daughter comes from within.)(Tehillim/Psalms 45:14) This alludes to the idea that the true essence of a Jewish woman is what is inside of her. Her "inner beauty" far outweighs the facade that most societies put so much emphasis on. Her character traits will last her entire lifetime, enriching her life and the lives of those around her. (Papercut size 8 in. x 8 in. framed 14 in. x 14 1n.)
