Description

The following description was prepared by William Gross:   

One of the main early activities of the Bezalel School in Jerusalem was the weaving of rugs.  The Bezalel School was one of the largest employer of labor in Jerusalem of the time and this activity was a prominent one.  The rugs were made in all sorts of designs.  This example combines the general form of an Islamic prayer rug, but is fashioned with Jewish symbols and has elements of Jugendstil character. This example is among the earlier works from this department.   

 Inscription:  Da' Lifnei Mi Atah 'Omed - Know Before Whom You Stand
