‘Blessed‘ Continuation of Kiddush.
The word ‘Blessed’ is written in a panel decorated by intricate red penwork. Verso is the prayer for washing the hands. The panel contains the mnemonic for the Passover Seder. In the panel four ceremonies are represented by four men. The man on the right holds a golden goblet to illustrate the Kiddush, the figure next to him depicts the second ceremonial act by washing his hands using a suspended gold vessel from which he pours water into a gold basin on the floor. The third figure holds a vegetable in his hand to portray the blessing over Karpas, while the separation of the matzo into two is shown by a man holding a broken circular matzo in his hand and raising a small piece.
