Photo of Zeev Raban (1890-1970) illustration to the Song of Songs 1:9-12 is courtesy of Ruth Doron, Zeev Raban’s daughter, who lives in Jerusalem and owns the copyrights of his works. Ofira Oriel sent me this photo with an explanation in Hebrew of each one of the Twelve Tribes’ emblems. There’s the Israeli Flag on the emblem of Gad, with the three tents. There are also rosettes, which look like Stars of David, under the emblems. Ofira told me that her father, Shlomo Kedmi, has been Raban’s pupil and later partner in the Jerusalem art workshop.
