Art Alone
© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Unknown,

At the top center of the sheet, within a bell-shaped cartouche, is the crowned bearded King Solomon sited on a stepped throne with a canopy pointing with his hand at a soldier on the left who holds the living naked child upside-down by the leg and lifting his sword. Three sages are standing on the right and two women in front of the King's throne are gesturing with their hands and body. Between the women is the dead child lying naked on the ground. The cartouche is framed by a thin gold line and placed at the centre of Ecclesiastes. The illustration based on I Kings 3:16-28.
