A bat mitzvah gift for Evelyn

I recreated the center of the mosaic floor where Evelyn's bat mitzvah service was held, replacing the signs of the zodiac with appropriate symbols for those who attended.
The surrounding corners hold Evelyn's favorite of the Sayings of the Fathers. Immediately surrounding the Helios center is a braid of lettering which lists, in two twisting strands, the places we visited. Immediately surrounding that braid is a prayer, written by Rabbi Jack Riemer, which was part of the service.

Gouache, watercolor, colored pencils, Arches watercolor paper.
