This is a full sized voluminous Menorah with a theatrical touch. The night of the miracle of Chanukah is depicted in deep blues and purples studded with shimmering stars and topped with a bright window with the Hebrew word for “Light” inscribed on the Jug of sacred oil. The intricate design is hand painted within the stainless steel frame. A variety of materials are inserted within and layered with artist’s resin. The Menorah parts are cut to perfectly fit and are assembled using no welding or glue resulting in a beautifully finished piece.
One of the oldest symbols of the Jewish faith, the Menorah, a seven-ranched candelabrum, was used daily in the Jerusalem temple. The nine-branched Menorah or Chanukia of today is lit during the eight days of the holiday of Chanukah. Commemorating the rededication of the temple and the jug of sacred oil, that miraculously, lasted for eight days.
