Jewish Art and Life

The row of oil fonts sits in front of a panel designed to look like a thick, tangled garden, apparently symbolizing the Garden of Eden. Two distinct trees stand in front, representing the Tree of Life and Tree of Knowledge. Flocks of birds sit perched in the tops of these trees, in the thick growth, and in the grapevines. The scene also includes lions, a unicorn, griffins, and cherubim. Beyond the fonts, a small deer and roosters stand on top of small posts.
