Four large folk-art "Shiviti" leaves. [Eretz Israel, 20th century]. 1. Lithographic "Shiviti" by Moshe ben Yitzchak Mizrachi. Jerusalem, 1926. Hand-colored. A handwritten dedication was added at the bottom of the leaf: "…to the Shalom UTzedaka synagogue in memory of… Zakiya bat Siti". 65X48.5 cm. Fair-poor condition. Mounted on a paper leaf and aluminum foil. Tears and open tears. Many stains. Pieces of paper and tape on margins of leaf. 2. "Shiviti", a leaf hand-drawn in black, blue, red, gold and silver. Jerusalem, 1957. Inscribed in the center of the leaf: "Donated by Tova bat Sarah". 70X50 cm. Poor-fair condition. Many stains. Tears and breaks. 3. "Shiviti", printed leaf - cutting and pasting craft - decorated with glitter and a hand-drawn frame. [Israel], 1959. Signed in the plate: "The young and small writer Yitzchak Cohen… this Menorah was written and signed on Thursday… [1959]". 70X50 cm. Poor condition. Mounted on cardboard. Breaks, tears and open tears. Stains. 4. "Shiviti", hand-drawn in black, gold and pencil. [Israel, ca. mid 20th century]. The word "Shiviti" is missing from the top of the leaf; from the partial decorations, some of which are in ink and others only in pencil, it is obvious that this leaf is unfinished. The Ten Commandments appear in the center. A large gold-colored drawing of the Temple Mount and the Graves of the Righteous is pasted below the Ten Commandments. 48X60.5 cm. Poor condition. Tears, open tears. Breaks. Folding marks. Stains and damage. Rough erasures. Pieces of tape on verso.
