Processed iron

On a flat, circular base sits the principal structure composed of single, moveable elements: two semi-circular iron strips set one in front of the other at slightly different heights. Eight iron panels are arranged on the rearmost strip, which is longer and higher up, little pages on which words and texts are inscribed in an imaginary script evocative of ancient Semitic writings. Just inside this rear strip is another, smaller one, which holds up the shamash. Eight candle holders are fixed with screws along the sweep of the other main curved strip, which sits furthest forward.
