Close-up of the Torah Mantle designs for Shabbat (foreground) and for Land of Milk and Honey (unassembled mantle in background) designed by Alison Shearman and sewn by Sandy Saccar for North Shore Temple Emanuel, Chatswood, Sydney. The Torah has been likened to many things and three of those things have been represented in these mantles: wine, light and honey (in this instance - date honey).
These Torah mantles, designed by Alison Shearman, were the first out of seven designed for the North Shore Temple Emanuel. The Torah has been compared to fire, honey, light, wine, a tree and water. These have been encapsulated in each of the designs. The two following designs compared the Torah to a fig tree and also to song.
School logo by Alison Shearman. Billy the Sulphur Crested Cockatoo was a logo designed by me to represent the core value of "ResponsiBILLY" in one of my school's PBEL (Positive Behaviour Engaging Learners) programs. He is one of four logos reflecting the predominant bird life around the school.
