Halacha - Display of divrei kedushah
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

Illuminated megillos are certainly permitted because the illustrations serve to enhance the beauty of the megilla and not the other way around. However using pesukim as a form of artwork to beautify one's house seems very questionable. Reb Moshe Feinstein zatzal in Igros Moshe YD 2:134,135 objects to the use of pesukim to enhance a commercial product, and presumably this would be no better. However I did not find anything explicit on this concept, and I am hesitant to criticize such an established practice without a clear source.
