Lumi di Chanukkah (triptych)

34 x 46 x 35 cm

Raku pottery and brass

The work consists of three separate sculptures, each equipped with three functional lamps that burn liquid wax. As they are so close as to almost touch each other, they symbolize the unity of three dimensions: the divine, the material, and the spiritual worlds. The colours on the glazed surfaces are meant to evoke an evening landscape, representing the colours of the soul, and the radiant light of G-d. The best aesthetic effect is achieved by turning on the lights in the pathos-laden light of dusk when the stars appear in the sky. The shamash is the central light in the sculpture, placed on the right at the top.
