The work represents a colourful, painted ceramic vase of flowers depicting the natural aquatic floral components it contains. A blue ribbon is draped around the lower part of the vase, arranged at a slight angle. Leaves and other items that make up the composition are attached to the structure, seemingly poking out from under the ribbon. At the top, along the round edge of the vase, are nine flowers that contain the lights. The ninth light, the shamash, is recognisable as the flower with the tallest stem.
