20 Description

Cartouche 19 (text panel 10 - upper margin): On the right, the crowned Esther sits in an armchair at a table and writes the Purim letter. This is witnessed by two men wearing turbans who stand next to the table (Es. 9:29). On the left, two mounted messengers ride towards a city (Es. 9:30).

Cartouche 20 (text panel 10 - lower margin): Five men wearing masks and tall pointed hats are dancing in a circle and playing musical instruments. The scene most likely depicts Purim celebration contemporary to the manuscript's creator.

Final decoration: The symmetrical composition of flowers, tendrils, and acanthus leaves.
