Amazing Megillot Series #1
I saw this absolutely fabulous Megilat Esther in a Jerusalem Judaica store. It's not an antique piece - it's actually brand new. I can't find out who's the artist, I only know he's Russian, and this "bargain" has a price tag of U$ 100,000. It's easily the nicest Megilla I've ever seen, since everything is perfect - the writing is spotless, the color drawings make a strong statement and the sketching work is a very original idea.
