The ritual scene of breaking and hiding one of the three ceremonial matzoth under the tablecloth, referred to in the text on the next page of the manuscript, is rarely depicted. Around the table are six people: on the left a bearded man, sitting on a large wood-grained chair decorated with gold, holds a round matza labelled ‘Matza’ in Hebrew, which he has presumably just removed from the ceremonial basket on a stand beside him. Opposite him a woman, presumably his wife, places half of the matza (the afikomen) under a cloth as prescribed in the text. The other figures shown here - two girls and two boys - reflect the view that the ritual is carried out to maintain the children’s interest, and the text on the facing page describes how they will recite the four ritual questions.

The decorative border is brought to life with many playful images. In the upper right hand corner, a dog offers a garment to a shivering, naked man; to the left, in another reversal of roles, a hare blowing a hunter’s horn faces a seated dog; in the left-hand corner, another rabbit turns to view these figures. The lower border contains a more traditional hunting scene, in which a hunter blowing a horn carries his prey on a staff over his shoulder, while two hounds before him face a fleeing hare. In the outer margin, a naked man, wearing a tall hat with a feather, rides a rooster and carries a shield. Lower down, an animal bearing a lance sits astride a donkey. Acorns are prominent in the border design, as elsewhere in the manuscript.
