All the elements of the BRIS, the circumcision, is depicted here on the 8th day after a male birth. The Mohel is hovering over the baby and the Sandek, the grandfather or Rebbe, is seen holding the child.

The Sandek is sitting on the Chair of Eliyahu, the prophet who we believe attends every bris and simcha.

The family members are to the right and shul attendees are to the left.
