Jewish Architecture Great Synagogue in Gura Humorului - Prayer hall - Ceiling
To the main object: Great Synagogue in Gura Humorului - Prayer hall
Flat ceiling is decorated in the form of a round plafond which looks like a sky with swallows flying over it. The images of the Four Animals from Pirkei Avot are placed on the four corners of the ceiling. Two bands of the zodiac signs are depicted on the north and south sides of the ceiling. Unfortunately, the signs of zodiac are barely visible.
