1794 Micrography & Geometry

This is one of the most exiting Stars of David I’ve ever seen. 

It is made from micrographic Hebrew letters of verses from The Song of Songs by Baruch Ben Shmariahu (Shir_Brest_1794). In addition, It expresses the tight connection of the six-pointed star to geometry.

Micrography is a unique Jewish art which has been developed in Tiberias in the 9th century C.E
