Jewish Architecture Leipziger Temple in Piatra Neamţ – Women's section
To the main object: Leipziger Temple in Piatra Neamţ – Prayer hall
The balconies of the women's section include fourteen murals depicting landscape scenes. The artist painted each of these landscapes within an oval border or "frame". All of the landscapes were executed in a popular folk style. They include depictions of: rural scenes with houses, trees, ponds, lakes, paths, and castles; animals including deer, swans, oxen, and even elephants; and different times of day (including sunrise and sunset) and of year (seasons). These compositions were repainted during restoration undertaken in the 1970s, and therefore it is impossible to say how they looked originally.
