Haftorah Klaf with colored illustrations ??


Can a kosher Klaf of a Navi have illustrations in color.
Illustrations done by someone other than sofer.
Above and/or below the text?
Written in Lithuania in the 1930s.


It is controversial if it allowed to have pictures or not, l’chatchila it shouldn’t be done, but in retrospect if it was already done (unlike a sefer torah) it will not make the navi posul.


Eiyahu Rabba 691-7, Maharsham O:CH 691, Zera Emes 1-100, Shevet Hekehuna 8 pg. 156-159, they talk about pictures in a megillah, which has the same halacha as a navi.
