Wroclaw Mahzor (Or. I,2, f. 46v [page 94]) : Sacrifice of Isaac

Above left, Abraham holds young Isaac by the hand and gestures as they ascend the mountain; at the center, Isaac lies bound on the altar as Abraham covers the child`s eyes and raises his sword. At right, an angel grabs the sword and points downward toward a ram caught in a small tree. In the foreground two servants drive a donkey carrying wood.
