Hebrew in the Painting is wrong...[edit]

Any ideas how to indicate in the article that the last letter (the one being drawn) is not correct? The vertical stroke should come from the right hand side of the letter (as a final Nun), not the center (which would be a Zayin).Naraht (talk) 16:27, 23 October 2012 (UTC)

I think it is you who are wrong. In both the nun and the zayin, the vertical stroke comes from the middle of the horizontal roof. Debresser (talk) 17:16, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
Look at he:נ, only one comes close to coming from the middle and that is the one with the tagin, which the Final Nun in the images certainly does not have.Naraht (talk) 19:25, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
The zayin catched my eye as well. It's definitley not a final nun. A source which backs up your observation: [1]. Gugganij (talk) 19:29, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
