David’s Lyre – a most unique, meticulous and beautiful bronze and marble menorah designed with the inspiration of the harp played by young David, before he became king of Israel.
A great deal of devoted labor went into the crafting of this menorah, and in the design and finishing stages of the harp, enormous attention was focused on the most minute details, in order to obtain a particularly unique design. The harp strings are of bronze and serve as the menorah’s arms, with candle holders for either candles or oil.
The entire harp rests on a base of special stone from Mt. Hermon. The stone was created in a geological process unique to the Hula Valley (Syrian-African Rift). The great pressure from the Rift caused the minerals to break apart and melt, resulting in a stunning display of stone with white and grey veins running through it.
An original, truly beautiful menorah.
This harp menorah can also be hung on a wall or in a window, instead of resting on the stone – in this way it will light up the miracle for all passersby, as in the Jewish tradition.
size: 85 cm width, 80 cm height (without the stone) or 110 cm height (with the stone).
