Michael Aram Hamsa Menorah, Limited Edition & Signed

3.5" wide x 14" long x 11.25" high; Nickelplate, Stainless Steel; 500 Limited Edition Signed / Numbered Pieces

The Hamsa is a time-honored symbol for many faiths and cultures. It suggests an ancestral blessing, a laying on of hands, a gesture of protection, support and comfort. In the context of this menorah, the symbol also evokes a sense of strength and solidarity. With the subtle placement of the candle holes, this highly unique piece is as a much a sculpture as it is a functional object. It is a limited edition of 500 pieces that is personally hand-signed and numbered by Michael.

"For me, objects of ritual from all faiths hold a very special place. They always feel as if they are imbued with a particularly profound energy and meaning. That is why I have such a fondness for creating Judaica. This sculpture draws from a symbol that has been used for millennia all over the world. It gives the impression of what has come before...history and family and generations of faith. Being a casting of my own hands, it is abstract yet intensely personal."
