Beneath the layers of texture and rice papers, is the text from Nehemiah when he read the Law to the people after returning to Jerusalem from captivity in Babylon. The gilded central panel contains the Hebrew text from the Ten Commandments. An English translation of the Ten Commandments is handwritten above the collaged surfaces. An old leather book cover is adhered to the surface of the collage with an etched star of David barely visible.
