20 Description

The book cover has a Parchment-form background. It is decorated with half page panel. The panel includes two lotus brown columns, with turquoise arches, framing four registers. The upper, arched register depicts two yellow sphinxes facing each other with three yellow pyramids of the ancient dynasty in between them, with a blue background. The three other registers are painted in an Egyptian style. The second register represents the Israelites in bondage in Egypt (oc. 1053.1.1).The third one represents Exodus (oc. 1053.1.2) and the bottom picture (oc. 1053.1.3) represents the Egyptians pursuing the Israelites. The text, GN., 15:14, is written at the bottom of the panel in block, golden Hebrew letters on a black background. The title is written on the lower half of the page, in bold block Hebrew letters : "הגדה של פסח" "Haggadah of Passover" The letters are painted in decorated turquoise contoured by a black line.
