Our pomegranate-shaped cutting board is generously sized at 16 inches tall by 13 inches across, and is constructed from 3/4 inch thick pine. The painted side is protected with multiple coatings of our special acrylic elastic lacquer that protects against scuffs and stains, while the cutting surface is made from highly durable Formica laminate. The cutting board features a pre-drilled hole at the top for easy hanging, washes easily with soap and water, and makes a beautiful and unusual gift of hand-painted kitchen art for any occasion.
The pomegranate figures prominently in the art of Aharon & Reut Shahar. Here is the significance of the pomegranate, in Reut's words:
"This wonderful fruit symbolizes wisdom, and that is why he wears a crown. Did you ever try to count its small sweet seeds? Each of them is like a fraction of all the different kinds of intelligence found in humanity. When you eat a pomegranate, you feel that an antique knowledge fills you, because you tasted from the biblical fruit of the prophets' land."
Please indicate during checkout, in the Comments space, whether you would like your cutting board with or without the Ha-Motzi (Hebrew blessing for bread).
