Eighth illustration. The picture represents the kinsman in a brown gown, above a red robe and a brown head cover, holding Boaz's shoe in his right hand. Boaz, wearing a blue robe with a head cover is seated on a stool with a bare foot. The notables of the town, wearing robes and head covers are gathered around him( two seen from the back). A man on his camel is seen at the background with the city houses, beyond the gate. The picture has a decorative frame at its top and sides. Below the picture the text is written in Hebrew block red, letters on a yellow background. It is a quotation from the Book of Ruth 4:8: "ויאמר הגאל לבעז קנה-לך וישלף נעלו" "Therefore the kinsman said unto Boaz, Buy it for thee. So he drew off his shoe". Below two animals are turning in opposite directions, with their heads turned to each other, revealing tongue. They are standing on a blue background.
