(1 of 8) Panels with the Ten Commandments - Decalogue panels - The Benediction of the Table
Etching by Abraham Bosse, 1635 - dimensions: 17.5 x 40 cm.
A family is sitting at a large table on which an opulent meal is set out. Their hands are folded. The father is seated at the centre. The only ornament on the wall behind him are the two panels with the Ten Commandments. To the right and left one can see through the large windows into the garden which is laid out like a park.
