20 Description

The decoration on the ceiling vault of the synagogue represents a multi-level composition. The central area is decorated with a large eagle against the background of a sky containing golden stars. The eagle has black breasts and enormous white wings. It clutches a red military standard bearing an inscription. This central composition (eagle and sky) is bordered by a multi-tiered frame composed of geometric designs, floral decorations, and a row of red curtains. The center of each side of the frame contains one of the four animals of Pirkei Avot 5:20 (tiger, eagle, deer, and lion).
