Jewish paper cutting is many hundreds years old. It is typically allegorical. The papercut usually illustrates or interprets a quotation or an idea. They are many times bisymmetrical and many times include writing. Until the twentieth century, it was not unusual to see "colored" papercuts. The artist might have used crayons, paints of all kinds, and ink to enhance the papercut.
