This design is inspired by a tiny seal the size of a button, inscribed with the Aramaic words “deka leyah”, meaning “pure for god”. An extremely rare find dated to the Second Temple period, it was likely used to mark products which were brought to the Temple and required a seal of purity. The seal was found during the sifting of archaeological rubble from the Herodian Channel Excavation at the foot of the Western Wall.
