  Hanukkah lamp

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Radovan, Zev, 1990
The standing back walled Hanukah^lamp consists of a row of oil containers, a back wall,side walls, a parapet, a shamash candle socket and legs. A row of eight half globular shaped oil containers are fastened to the back and side walls. The decoration of the openwork back wall is divided into two parts: a rectangular horizontal lower part in an oval pattern, surmounted by two intertwined branches which end with two symmetrical zoomorphic heads, topped by a crown. A vase-shaped shamash candle socket surmounts the crown. The side walls are inserted into the back wall and their decoration continues the back wall design. The curved legs are an integral part of the side walls. The parapet is screwed to the side walls. Its decoration is similar to the lower openwork oval pattern of the lower back wall, and it is topped with dentated projections.
