in the outer and lower margins, are represented scenes from the seder of

Passover ritual that precedes the recitation of Haggadah:

servant is pouring the water from a jug over his hands,

into a bowl.

standing while dividing a mazah into two halves for the afiqoman.

Two other mazot are before him on the ground.
