The rectangular Hanukkah Lamp consists of a back wall and a base. A row of eight round indentations for candles is situated in the center of the rectangular base. The base rests on seven arches with depictions in between each arch. Starting from the center the depictions are: The tables of the cevenant, to the right- the breastplate of the high priest and a helmet of a Roman centurion. To the left-hand raised if the Priestly blessing and a jug. Around the corners of each side there are on the right - clusters of grapes and on the left - sheaves of wheat. There is an ear shaped platform on the right side of the base with a candle indentation for the Shamash. The back wall is a continuation of the base and is composed of two waves with a Star of David in the center.
