Third illustration, illustrates part of Ruth 1:19, which is quoted above the picture. The picture is surrounded by spikes and has a decorated frame on its sides and margins (see 1051.5.1). The central picture represents old Naomi in a gray robe, holding a stick in her right hand and a package in the left one, supported by Ruth. Ruth, wearing a green robe with a red shawl on her hips, is carrying a big orange package on her head supported by her left hand. They are barefooted, walking in a paved path at Beth-Lehem marketplace. The city inhabitants are gathered around Naomi and Ruth, beside the goods and looking at them. At the background are the city houses. Part of the Ruth 1:19 is written at the upper part of the frame in Hebrew red, block letters on a pink background: "ויהי כבאנה לבית לחם ותהם כל העיר עליהן" "And it came to pass when they came to Beth-Lehem, that all the city was moved about them". The frame picture depicts, at the bottom two peacocks, standing below the branches of an orange plant. The blue peacock on the left is lowering his head in front of the pink one on the right. The orange plant is sprouting along the side frame, reaching the verse at the top with flowering, leafed branches.
