20 Description A tinted, rectangular panel spanning the bottom of the text space encloses a scene illustrating the Ha Lahma passage above. The scene shows five bearded men and two women sitting in a room round a table set with a cloth, goblets and mazot. The basket-like Seder plate placed at the center of the table is about to be removed by one of the women, according to the instructions in the text above. A candelabra hangs from the ceiling over the Seder plate. Another man stands on the right opening the door for a needy man who holds a walking stick, illustrating the above passage, כל דכפין ייתי ויכל. כל דצריך ייתי ויפסח, "All who are hungered let them eat: all who are needy let them come and celebrate the Passover." Above the rectangular panel on the right, a small square panel enclosing the initial letter, "Mem," illustrates the adjacent Mah Nishtanah passage. The letter, tinted blue, surrounds a small boy standing before his father seated by a covered table. The boy raises a mazah before him as if posing the question from the passage, הלילה הזה כולו מצה, "On this night only unleavened [bread]..." The initial word opening the passage "Ha Lahma Anya" is enclosed within two small, square initial letter panels suspended from the center of an ornamental pediment which crowns the text space. The panel on the right encloses the tinted initial letter, "Heh." The letter surrounds a bearded man holding a mazah and sitting in an armchair. The adjacent panel encloses the tinted letter "Alef." The letter is surrounded by various items from the Seder table including a mazah, horseradish and bitter herbs.
