Illuminated Law – Ketubah inspired legal paintings

Calligraphy and classic illuminations combined with legal documents. I came across this beautiful old-age example of GoodMoodLaw through an exhibition on Ketubah,  illustrated Jewish wedding certificates.  What a great way for people to express how much they care about their agreements!  A contract like this simply can’t be stored in a box. It is an invitation to look at it over and over again, and a friendly reminder of the commitments. What if we would treat our laws and contracts in a similar way?

I played with this idea and painted several formal and informal laws. This one is about one of my favorite laws, from the Open Space Technology principles for meeting facilitation.
