"SHE’S GONE AND THE HARP IS BROKEN"
A body in state. A harp ripped apart. A rose wilts on the floor and a shirtless guy contemplates it all.
These are part of the image created by the art nouveau illustrator Moses Ehpraim Lilien for the book Judah by Barren Börries Freiherr von Munchausen. Around 1900 Munchausen published a collection of poetry called Judah in which he covered topics such as ancient and contemporary Jewish practice and myth, Greek stories, and Germanic mythology. Lilian completed several images for this volume, which, itself, became the standard gift for Bar Mitzvahs and Jewish confirmations in turn-of-the-century Germany.
Lilian was and remains known his illustrations in the art nouveau style, particularly the images he created for early-Zionist projects.  Munchausen was an intriguing character known in large part for his attempts to create a German military academy in the Prussian model in Nazi Germany.

The poetic beauty of this image lies in just the hint of how creation started… with a tap of the fingers…
Artist Unknown.  Creation: the first day. Part of a world history, The Nuremberg Chronicle; also referred to as Liber Chronicarum.  First published in 1493;  incabulum (printed, not written).  Watercolour print from woodcut.   
והארץ היתה תהו ובהו וחשך על פני תהום ורוח אלהים מרחפת על פני המים יאמר אלהים יהי אור ויהי אור וירא אלהים את האור כי טוב ויבדל אלהים בין האור ובין החשך
And the earth was formless and void, and darkness was on the face of the deep, and God’s spirit hovered over the waters. And God said, let there be light, and there was light. And God saw that the light was good, and God divided the light from the darkness.
