Shiviti with Lions
Size: 29×39 cm
A traditional composition from East European Jewish culture, who used it to indicate the direction of prayer, displaying it on the wall in the direction facing Jerusalem.
Jewish symbols are: the golden menorah from before the Holy of Holies, the star of David, the crown of the kingdom, lions and deer, and birds representing cherubs from the ark of the covenant.
The verse quoted in ovals flanking the Menorah is Psalm 16:18: “I have set the Lord continually before me.”
Available good quality laser-cut reproduction with hand-made details (water-color) and calligraphy (indian ink).
