20 Description

In the center of the upper frame, the crowned and fashionably dressed Queen Esther is sitting at a large table with dishes on it. She is looking to the king who is sitting on her left and with her left hand, she is pointing to Haman who is sitting in front of the king. The crowned and bearded King Ahasuerus is extending his hand towards Haman who is wearing a cap (kalpak) and seems to move his hand in wonder. Two chamberlains and a maiden are standing behind the king and the queen, and two other servants - depicted as small figures in the foreground - are serving the meal. The scene is captioned in Hebrew: "איש צר ואויב המן הרע הזה", "The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman" (Es. 7:6).
