New York Carving of Rabbi's Face with Beard, Payots, and Mustache (Close Up)

New York Carving of Rabbi's Face with Beard, Payots, and Mustache (Close Up)

Hand made and painted wood carving a rabbi holding a shofar. He is wearing a long black coat, and has a long beard and payots (long sideburns or curls). The rabbi is wearing a yarmulke (small skull cap) on his head. It symbolizes piety and reminds Jews that the Divine Presence is over his head. Rabbis also wear a tzitzit, with tassels that hang down from a garment. A shofar is a musical instrument, usually made of a ram's horn. The shofar is blown as a part of services in the synagogue on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. The figure is 6 inches (15 cm) tall.
