20 Description

The drawing represents a group of four actors playing in a "Purim-shpil". At the center there is a pair: Esther the Queen (a man wearing checkered dress) and Ahashverosh with a crown, scepter and a big goblet. To the left of them there is Haman - a tall man with a sharp cap on his head and a sword in his right hand. He bends and points to the "king" and "queen" with his left hand. To the right there is Mordechai - a small humpbacked man with a turban on his head
