Connect your home décor and the Holy Land with this unique ceramic platter from the Israel Museum collection. Based on a 5th century fish-shaped mirror-plaque found near Dikhrin in Israel, this platter is adorned with a golden fish surrounded by a similarly-colored circle design. Mirror plaques were used to ward off evil spirits, by deflecting their harmful influence back upon themselves, and are commonly found in burial sites. Uniquely designed, this platter will make a wonderful gift for anyone with an appreciation for the history of the Holy Land.
Israel's largest cultural institution, the Israel Museum, is dedicated to recording and safeguarding the relics that chronicle the tale of the Jewish people. Housing thousands of years of ancient artifacts pertaining to Jewish culture all over the world, the Israel Museum’s mission is to educate and encourage knowledge of Judaism’s rich and fascinating history to people all over the globe. One of their methods of fulfilling this dream is to create stunning replicas and adaptations of the original pieces in their encyclopedic collections and distribute them worldwide. With each captivating replication comes its own certification of authenticity, as well as a brief summary of that piece’s historical background in both Hebrew and English.Top of Form
