Reviews

The author dwells on the peculiarities of Jewish religious cult objects produced in Iran, through their Islamic and other vernacular features. Iranian influence is particularly stressed in the case of a Jewish marriage contract (ktuba) of 1889 from Isfahan, with representation of the ‘Sun and Lion’ (shir u khurshid), to be met also on cameos produced for Iranian Jews.
