Greetings

Namaste (Greeting)

Namaste, is not only salutation but is also a mudra or gesture,
a bow with hands pressed together, which traditionally means
'I honor the Spirit, the Divine, in you which is also in me.'

 

This greeting in silk hangs horizontially and is hand printed on both sides with a coin embellishment on one side; there are two pieces of bamboo with beadwork at the top and a finishing piece of bamboo at the bottom.

This is also available vertically as a petite scroll, a petite scroll mobile with silk origami crane and a long tapestry with kimono inspired print fabric appliqued on black silk fabric with two pieces of bamboo at the top and bottom.

 

Shalom / Salaam (Greeting)

 

For thousands of years people have met one another with this lovely greeting,
“May peace be upon you!”

 

One side of the horizontal greeting is in English and on the otherside it is in Hebrew and Arabic.

 

Shalom Aleichem , is the greeting in Hebrew, translating "peace be upon you".
The appropriate response "Aleichem shalom" translates "upon you be peace".

Assalamu Alaykum is the Arabic greeting, generally accompanied
with the gesture of putting your hand on your heart.

Today often you will hear the simple    “Peace” - “Shalom” - “Salaam”,
when one meets or parts from another person.

I have included nesting doves in this Greeting, as the family suggests to me
the essence of peace, where often there is disagreement,
different positions and opinions, but the deeper love and respect
within the family allows communication and in some ways a resolution.

One of the doves is descending, representing to me grace,
hope and love over fear, resting on the shoulders
of the person you are meeting.
