20 Description

The scroll executed in a mixed technique; the text was written by a scribe within a printed decoration. It opens with a symmetrical pattern composed of a flower placed in the central part of it and six birds grouped in pairs. In the central part of the decorative scheme, there are roundels in which the text of the Book of Esther was inscribed. Above each of them, there are three animals: a lion (on the right), a lamb (in the center) and a bear (on the left) that can be symbols of – respectively ‒ Persia, the nation of Israel, and Media. Below the roundels, the scenes from the Book of Esther narrative placed in rectangles with decorative frames are depicted. They are surrounded by vases filled with bouquets of flowers that are standing on tall and narrow carved columns. The background is precisely filled with minor details such as birds and with a cross-hatching.    

Shalom ben Mordecai (d')Italia was a prolific Jewish artist. He was born in Mantua but between circa 1641 and circa 1649 worked as an engraver in Amsterdam (after this date, most likely, he returned to Italy). During this time, he created several engraved borders for megillot Esther most of which are based on an architectural framing.
