  Sgan-Cohen, Genesis

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Laor, Liora, 3.1995

Chapters 1-16 of Genesis are written in small, densley spaced, black Hebrew letters in three columns on two thirds of the page. The right column, (Gen 1:1-4:7) is the widest of all columns and almost joins the middle column. The first five lines of the right column are not as densely spaced as the rest of the column. The middle column (Gen. 4:7 - 5:25) is less tightly packed than the right column. The colunm on the left is composed of two paragraphs. The upper paragraph (Gen. 5:25-6:4) is rectangular in shape with crowded evenly spaced lines, similar to the other two columns. The lines of the lower paragraph (Gen 6: 5-8), are written with wider spacing and the letters are also larger . A few lines are drawn over the word Jehova, suggesting the holy ghost.
