“Ani l’dodi, v’dodi li – I am my beloved and my beloved is mine” a quote from the “Song of Songs” uttered by the Bride to the Groom under the Chuppah, pledging the couples love for each other & binding their souls together.

Through the extensive use of bold, vivid colours, whimsical & imaginative characters, Martin creates a dream like celebration of the evolution of Love & the celebration of Life.
