Yaakov Ne'eman Ushpizin Paper Cut

Photo is courtesy of Zipora Ne'eman who learned the art of paper cut from her father in law, Ya’akov Ne’eman, who started making paper cuts in 1977 while he was 70 years old. He created about 600 original paper cuts in 12 years and is considered to be one of the gratest paper cut artists in the 20th century.

This paper cut is titled Ushpizin. The six sides of the Magen David symbolize the six Ushpizin:Abram, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Aaron, Joseph. The Magen David in its entirety symbolizes the last Ushpizin – King David
