Fol. 66:

The page opening the section of Hosha’not prayers of Sukkot is decorated with a large initial word panel occupying the upper part of the page. In the outer margin, adjacent to the panel is an illustration of a man holding in his hands two of the Four Species - a lulav (palm branch) and etrog (citron fruit), each encased in a special holder (see fig. 1, below). He is wrapped in a tallit (prayer shawl) covering most of his head and shoulders. The corners of the tallit are edged in red.

The initial word “Hosha`nah”  (הושענא)is written in burnished gold display script against the blue ground panel filled with white feathery scrolls with red dots and white flowers. The panel is surrounded with a gold frame decorated above and below with gold clusters of buds and with a single bud on each of the four corners and on the left and right borders.

A small pen-work initial word panel in red and pink filigree work is set in the right text column extending on the right into a decorated narrow band ending in the lower margin in floral tendrils. The decoration was executed in the second stage of decoration.
