Tulane Hillel Built-in Aron Kodesh

This built-in Aron Kodesh was designed in cooperation between Bass Synagogue Furniture, Tulane Hillel House, and Shoshana Gugenheim. All carving was done by artist Gabriel Bass in deep relief using traditional curved blade knives, which leave a unique texture that draws the eye and hand to the work. The doors depict the first ten letters of the Hebrew aleph-bet as being the first utterances of creation and symbolically representing the 10 commandments. It was installed with little effort into the niche almost 2 meters tall by 2 meters wide by 50 cm deep at the New Tulane Hillel House Building in New Orleanes. Made from African Walnut, including the handles, with panel doors and frame work made with deep double mortise and tenon joints designed specifically for these extraordinarily large doors.
Dimensions 200cm W x 200cm H x 54cm D

Additional Information

Each product is crafted individually, by hand, with attention to detail. Our clients appreciate the work and service we provide. We follow all plans and requests down to scale and our clients delighted by the products they receive. In order for us to deliver the best quality product, we need to make decisions regarding some details during production. You are likely not going to receive the exact product in the photograph on the website. Because of the organic nature of other custom projects, such as carving or glass work, there is no way in describing the exact details in rendering in advance. The only decisions that we make are those that we believe will make the product either of higher quality, stronger, more functional, or aesthetically pleasing. As a client of any craftsman you are putting your confidence in their decisions.
