Esther Scroll Peacock Necklace
The stunning peacock image and elegant art used in the design of this large pendant come from an illuminated Esther scroll. The clear dome cover on the necklace amplifies the design from afar. This necklace is a wonderful choice for a meaningful gift.
Illumination of Esther scrolls began around 1600 in central and southern Europe. One of the oldest known is from Ferrara, Italy, dating back to 1615. Biblical scrolls and texts are not adorned with decorative images and visual art in Jewish communities in deference to honoring the name and person of God, as prescribed in the second of the 10 commandments (Exodus 20:4-5). The book of Esther never uses the name of God or refers to God, thus it has become the one book of the Bible that Jews ornament and illustrate.
The Size and Construction
The Esther Scroll Peacock Necklace has a 28" long chain and an oval pendant that measures 2.25" x 2" x .5". The necklace weighs 1.06 oz and is handmade from metal alloy, glass and paper. A Museum of the Bible storage box is included.
