12 School/Style Pseudo-Griselini|

The family of Italian Esther scrolls from around the mid-18th century designed by an anonymous engraver whose decoration imitates the scheme designed by Francesco Griselini (see Griselini scrolls). They are produced in the mixed technique in which decorative border is printed, while the Hebrew text of the Book of Esther is penned by a scribe; some exemplars are also hand-painted. The general composition is the same as in Griselini scrolls and only minor details such as dogs present in the narrative scenes and the checkered floor can be found in them. The scrolls of this family are formed of five sheets with four text panels each.

20 Description

The scroll represents the Pseudo-Griselini type whose decoration imitates the scheme designed by Francesco Griselini (see "Griselini scrolls" in the Index). All Pseudo-Griselini scrolls are formed of five sheets with four text panels per each membrane and are produced in the mixed technique of the decorative border that is printed and hand-written text. Its general composition is the same as in the Griselini scrolls and only minor details - dogs present in the narrative scenes and the checkered floor - differ them. The scheme is based on the row of arcades under which individual columns of the Hebrew text of the Book of Esther are inscribed. On the arcades is placed a balustrade with cartouches flanked by flowers and pairs of birds - turkeys, roosters, parrots, or hoopoes - with their heads turned away; these sections are interspersed by vases with flowers or small citrus trees. Above each cartouche, a peacock or a double-headed eagle is placed. Lower margins are adorned with scenes illustrating the narrative of the Book of Esther in rectangular frames that are separated by the columns' bases. The same pattern repeats along with the scroll and only the narrative scenes on the subsequent sheets are different. The text is inscribed in 19 columns and the last panel is left blank.

20 Description

The scene is difficult for an unambiguous interpretation. On the right, the group of people is shown; they can be maidens that were given to Esther (Es. 2:9) or one of the groups of women who were brought to the king's palace (e.g. Es. 2:19). Similarly, it is difficult to interpret if in the carriage (depicted on the left) Esther is coming or other maidens are brought to the palace.

20 Description

On the right, the king stands on a pedestal and in his outstretched hands holds a crown which he is about to place on the head of Esther. Behind her, four women stand and the scene is witnessed by chamberlains and guards (Es. 2:17). The composition is filled with the buildings that are visible on the left and in the background. Far in the background, behind the buildings (possibly outside the city walls), there is a hardly noticeable gallows with two tiny bodies suspending from it (Es. 2:23).

20 Description

On the right, Haman is hanged on the gallows (Es. 7:10). A ladder leans against it and at its top sits an executioner who holds his legs on Haman's neck. Next to it, a group of guards with spears is standing. On the left, Ahasuerus sits on the throne and Esther kneels at his feet; she is attended by two maid-servants. In the background, there is a figure (Mordecai?) who watches the scene. It can depict either the moment when the king gives Haman's house to Esther (Es. 8:1) or when she pleads with him to annul Haman's decree (Es. 8:3).

On the right, before Ahasuerus seated on the throne placed on a pedestal, under a canopy, stands Queen Esther attended by four maid-servants. Next to the throne, most likely Mordecai and two other men are standing (Es. 8:7-8). The gestures of the king and the queen suggest that they are talking. On the left, there is a long table at which a scribe is seated (Es. 8:9); he is accompanied by three other people.

20 Description

The frame contains a depiction of Jerusalem shown as a walled city towards which the Messiah on a horseback is approaching. Before him, a herald blowing a trumpet is coming and on the hills surrounding the city, Jews going towards Jerusalem are visible. The representation echoes a woodcut from the Passover Haggadah printed in Venice in 1609 and at the same time, it alludes to the Midrashic statement that in the messianic times, all feast will be abolished except for that of Purim (Yalkut Shimoni Mishlei 9:2 (944)).The text panel above the frame is blank. It is likely that this panel was planned for the benedictions and/or liturgical poems.
