Layout for a Song of Songs-themed carpet by Yaakov Kanterowitz - stamped in ink.

This pattern served to prepare a carpet, at the inception of the Bezalel Academy. On the right and left, there are excerpts of verses from Shir HaShirim, and illustrations on the subjects quoted - a young goat, pomegranates, vines and figs.

Yaakov Kanterowitz [1890-1961] was one of the first to study and work at Bezalel, head of the Bezalel carpet division, founder of the Marvadia workshop and its director.

42x61 cm. There is a hole with a lace for hanging at the top. Some of the color is faded, stains. Minimal tears. Fine condition.
