"Then Miriam the prophetess, Aaron's sister, took a timbrel in her hand, and all the women went out after her in dance with timbrels."

(Exodus 15, 20)

Miriam's goblet

Copyright 2008 by Avi Biran

The design shows the timbrel that was used while dancing after crossing the Red Sea and singing Shirat Hayam (Song of the Sea). The cup passes through the timbrel like a well that goes into ground. Miriam was called a prophetess because she knew where to locate underground water during their travel in the desert. When shaking the cup, sounds of the joy are heard.
