Challah Cover | Hayom x Nathanaelle Herbelin
Nathanaelle Herbelin is one of the rising stars of the figurative painting scene. (As artnet states 'collectors can't get enough of her paintings'!) For Hayom, Nathanaelle Herbelin has created a challah cover reminding us of the layer of dew that enclosed the manna and kept it fresh during the Exodus. Therefore, she made small rain drops out of different fabrics to protect the holy loafs of bread. The painter worked with various pigments of blue to dye each drop one by one before assembling them together.
One of the reasons she was drawn to this object is that she was amused by the idea that the challah is covered in order to not be “shamed” by the fact that the wine is drunk before the bread is eaten during the Shabbat service.
