The work features a curved iron bar, tangent to the floor at either end, with a second iron bar, smaller than the first and resting entirely on the floor, which runs its entire length. Nine small posts, which are also made of iron, are arranged on the main curved surface. They differ in height and are reinforced around the middle. The candles are placed at the top of these. In this structure, the ninth light, the shamash, is symbolically placed at the far left and stands on a triangular iron plate that is an extension of the main bar.
