20 Description

Vol. II, fol. 95v: Two angels with large wings spreading upwards support a rectangular panel enclosing the initial word אאמיץ (לנורא ואיום) (I will praise the Almighty bravely; Davidson, Thesaurus, א 13) opening the yozer for the morning service of the second day of Sukkot. The angels are dressed in long green and white tunics with red and green collars respectively, and their gold wings, outlined in red, are adorned at the edges with blue and green palm leaves. The display letters are in alternating red and silver powder (turned black) decorated with acanthus leaves: silver on the red, and green (vestiges) on the silver. A wild boar and a pleated motif are depicted in the central red letter mem (מ). The silver decoration is tooled with a pattern of squares.

The initial word is on a blue ground studded with gold flowers. The stems of the letters are decorated with green or red rings.

 The panel is framed by a red and green border and decorated above and below with a gold floral lace pattern, surrounded with alternating red and blue stylized flowers.

The supporting angels are shown with their knees slightly bent. Their hair is in yellow ochre resembling the gold of their wings, and their skin-coloured faces are delicately rendered.
