  Hanukkah Lamp

© Belarusian National History Museum, Photographer: Sutyagin, Vladimir, 2019

The back wall of a Hanukkah lamp feature two rampant lions flanking an arched geometric shape. The arch is surmounted by a semifoliate design alluding to a crown. A Hebrew inscription is written on the bodies of the lions beginning on the right with the words: "להדליק נר " ("To kindle the light"), and ending on the left lion with, "של חנוכה" ("of Hanukkah").

For the drawing of the Hanukkah lamp by Solomon Yudovin see CJA object 28096.
