  Day of Atonement buckle, Galicia

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Radovan, Zev, 1992

The Day of Atonement buckle is rectangular. In the center the sacrifice of Isaac is depicted (9184), surrounded by a frame which bears oval medallions with the signs of the zodiac (9183). A band which surrounds the scene of the sacrifice of Isaac, bears an inscription in square letters which reads:

"ויקרא אליו מלאך מן השמים ויאמר אברהם אברהם ויאמר הנני ויאמר אל תשלח ידך אל הנער" )בראשית כב יא-יב(## "כי ביום הזה יכפר עליכם לטהר אתכם מכל חטאתיכם לפני יי תטהרו" )ויקרא טז ל (

"And the angel of the Lord called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham Abraham, and he said here am I. And he said, lay not thine hand upon the lad." (Gen. 22: 11-12) "For on that 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)
