20 Description The free standing back walled Hanukkah lamp consists of eight oil containers, a back and side walls.The eight round spouted oil containers are fastened to the back. The openwork back wall is rectangular and consists of a round medallion in the center. The medallion is framed by a wreath with a bow at top, and is surmounted by a Star ofDavid enclosing a hat. Two similar symbols appear on either side of the medallion. The back wall is decorated with flowers, rocailles and foliate wreaths. The right side wall bears the image of Moses, holding the Tables of the Covenant with raus of light beaming from his head. His left hand is outstretched. The left side wall bears the image of Aaron, wearing the breastplate and a mitre on his head. In his left hand he is holding an incense censor and in his outstretched right hand there is an opening probably for the Shamash.
