This matzo baker in 'The Bread Of Affliction' made his first appearance in an illustration commissioned for the 1986 Passover issue of The Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle. Though originally intended as a black and white drawing with halftones, the newspaper decided to add blue as an additional color in the grey areas of the image. The matzo baker, shown with his perforating rolling pin that was used to incise dotted lines across the sheet of matzo is holding a piece of shmurah matzo, specially baked for Passover because it may not remain in the oven longer than eighteen minutes.
