A Portrait of R. El'azar HaKalir (c. 570 – c. 640) on a Prayerbook Binding

There were numerous Editions of the famed Rodelheim Mahzorim Published, but I came across one with an interesting binding. On the binding appears a portrait of none other than R. El'azar HaKalir (c. 570 – c. 640).

  1. I once saw his picture in another book and he looked different?
