The ceiling of the wooden hexagonal bimah was decorated with a depiction of a crowned double-headed eagle with the lulav and etrog (looking like a scepter and an orb) in its paws. The depiction of the eagle was sourrounded by an inscription:
כנשר יעיר קנו על גוזלו ירחף יפרוש כנפיו יקחהו ישאהו על אברתו: יי בדד ינחנו ואין עמו אל נכר: [דברים לב, יא-יב]
As an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, that spreads its wings to catch them and carries them aloft. The Lord alone led him; no foreign god was with him. Deut. 32:11-12.
Trees with birds under a sky with stars and probably sun (or moon) are depicted around the central medalion.
According to a legend, the wall paintings in the synagogue were done by Italian artist Andrioli: "flower combined with animals - deer and lions - and with ancient holy symbols of our people like the tablets of the law, the menorah, magen david etc." (Poran, p. 300).
