silent auction

Re-posted for those of you not on facebook:

Silent Auction time folks - Here were have for sale a large foil-embossed print of a page from the Darmstadt Haggadah, a 15th century jewish illuminated manuscript detailing the story of Exodus and containing the liturgy for Pesach. My Hebrew is lousy, so I’m afraid I can’t tell you exactly what is written here, however the piece is particularly beautiful, and the figure lighting the menorah is certainly intriguing. I’ve had a look online and can’t find any photos of this exact page, so unfortunately I can’t tell you any more than that – though if anyone knows more about this particular image it would certainly be interesting to find out.
Comes in a wooden frame with gold border, thick brown mount with smaller gold inner mount (check out the photos for a better description)

This is up for silent auction if anyone is interested – starting price is £6.00 (to cover shipping) If you are interested, just message me via The Occult Consultancy page or, giving your bid. Bids will be accepted until midnight tomorrow (9/11/13)
