20 Description The middle six of the fifteen Seder signs, from Rahaza to Barekh (excluding Shulhan Orekh) are arranged in two adjacent columns of three rectangular panels each, on a full page. Each column is to be read from top to bottom beginning on the right, while each panel is identified by a title. The first four panels are also accompanied by the blessing or formula recited at the relevant stage of the Seder. In each scene the leader of the Seder sits in a room in an armchair on the left at the head of a rectangular covered table, joined by the other Seder participants. A candelabra hangs over the center of the table. The opening panel, for the sign Rahaza, shows four people seated round the Seder table. A fifth person stands on the left holding a jug to wash the hands of the leader of the Seder. The leader holds his hands over a basin. The second panel, for the signs Mozi and Mazah, shows four people seated round the table with the leader raising a mazah in his left hand. More mazot (?) rest on the table while the Seder plate (?) is set on the table by the leader. The third panel, for the sign Maror, shows five people round the table with the leader holding a goblet in his left hand and resting his right hand on the table. While copying from his model the artist mistakenly reversed the illustration for this sign with that of the next one (Korekh) and also wrote the incorrect blessing: "the eating of mazah," instead of "the eating of maror." The fourth panel, for the sign Korekh, shows five people seated round the table, with the leader raising a bunch of leaves (representing the maror for the previous sign). The fifth panel, for the sign, Zafun, shows five people seated round a table while the leader raises his hands, possibly showing the afikoman to be eaten as dessert. The final panel, for the sign Barekh, shows four men seated around a table raising their goblets while blessing the third cup of wine following the Grace after Meals.
