This Squirrel Mezuzah recalls a time when craftsmen embellished Jewish ceremonial objects with leaves and vines, pomegranates and sunflowers, rams and lions; a time when ritual objects were narrative, pulling the beholder back to an age that recalls heroes and miracles, providing a keen sense of protection and satisfaction. These embellished Judaica pieces were made of tin, pewter, copper, bronze and silver.
Historically, Jewish law forbade artisans from using images of the human figure. As early as the third century Judaica makers turned to animal forms, vegetable and fruit motifs, even architectural images, to express aesthetic pleasure. As the Talmud encourages us through hiddur mitzvah, we make ceremonial objects with an eye to beauty.
This Mezuzah was made to intuitively capture the historical dimensions of the Jewish experience. Small animals, such as squirrels, were often seen in some of the earliest illustrations of Jewish manuscripts. It is made, in the USA, of cast bronze.

Arrived on time and looks even better than it did in the pictures. Shout out to the Mezuzah Master rep who helped me find the perfect mezuzah for our new house!
This ‘Dove’ Mezuzah is even more beautiful than I expected. My deceased brother’s Hebrew name is ‘Dov’, and I gave this Mezuzah to his daughter, my niece, and her new husband, as a wedding gift.
