Silver Plated Yemenite Shofar, Olives
A Polished Yemenite Shofar decorated with an Olive branch in silver plating with gold highlights. These shofars measure 35”-40”/90-100 cm along the outside of the spiral.
The Yemenite Shofar is made from the Kudo, a type of antelope, horn. The silver plating is beautifully hand applied after the shofar has been properly processed to kosher standards. This shofar is decorated with a lovely olive branch design. One of the Seven Species of Israel, the olive branch has long been a symbol of peace. After the flood, the dove brings an olive branch to Noah to signal the receding of the floods and the returning of life to the earth. Olive branches are a component of the symbol of the modern State of Israel indicating its hope for peace.
