This four-panel leather kippah features a digital print of the Star of David designed by Sol LeWitt.

In 2001, LeWitt co-designed the Connecticut synagogue Beth Shalom Rodfe Zedek with architect Stephen Lloyd. The synagogue tried repeatedly to translate the radiant, geometric design the artist made for the ark doors into the convex form of a yarmulke. When the design was finally achieved it sold out almost instantly and since then there have been six more editions including this one which is the 7th and final. Each edition varied in trim color and the color of the inside fabric, but all shared the same six-pointed star design, a common motif in the late artist's work. The 7th edition design features a bright blue trim and a gray interior with the edition details in gold lettering. It is an open edition.
