Description Eighth illustration. The picture represents the kinsman in a brown gown, above a red robe and a brown head cover, holding Boaz's shoe in his right hand. Boaz, wearing a blue robe with a head cover is seated on a stool with a bare foot. The notables of the town, wearing robes and head covers are gathered around him( two seen from the back). A man on his camel is seen at the background with the city houses, beyond the gate. The picture has a decorative frame at its top and sides. Below the picture the text is written in Hebrew block red, letters on a yellow background. It is a quotation from the Book of Ruth 4:8: "ויאמר הגאל לבעז קנה-לך וישלף נעלו" "Therefore the kinsman said unto Boaz, Buy it for thee. So he drew off his shoe".
