This amazing woodcut is a true gem of baroque art. It depicts the Shulchan or The table of showbread. It was made in 1753 for a Luther Bible. It shows not only a depiction of the Shulchan, but also a German description of it according to the bible. The woodcut is very fine and a true piece of art.

The table of showbread was a small table made of acacia wood and overlaid with pure gold. It measured 3 feet by 1.5 feet and was 2 feet, 3 inches high. It stood on the right side of the Holy Place across from the lampstand and held 12 loaves of bread, representing the 12 tribes of Israel. The priests baked the bread with fine flour and it remained on the table before the Lord for a week; every Sabbath day the priests would remove it and eat it in the Holy Place, then put fresh bread on the table. Only priests could eat the bread, and it could only be eaten in the Holy Place, because it was holy.
