  Day of Atonement buckle

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Radovan, Zev, 4.1994

The rectangular buckle with wavy edges bears a depiction of a shield in the center surmounted by a crown and falnked by lions rampant on either side. The inscription on the shield in square linear letters reads: "For on this day shall the priest make an atonement for you to cleanse you that ye may be clean from all your sins before the Lord" (Lev.16;30). There are scrolls all around the depictions on the buckle. The back side of the buckle has two strips for the belt to go through.
