"...AND A BRANCH SHALL GROW FROM HIS ROOTS" (Isaiah 11, 1)

AND A BRANCH SHALL GROW FROM THEIR ROOTS

Tulips Menorah

Copyright 2002 by Avi Biran

The original verse from Isaiah was changed from singular to plural to refer to a couple - two people that joined together to build a family. Two grandparents that are solid as mountains are solid. The base resembles the mountain with texture that looks like earth (semi polished). The text is hewn from the mountain. The letters display the roots that form the embodiment of the whole family. The letters provide air to the roots. From the fruitful ground 9 flowers are growing. Each one depicts one grandchild. The leaves of each flower are hewn with the Hebrew and English names. The connection was made between the grandparents and the third generation. Genetically the third generation strongly reflects the first generation. The green color symbolizes age, and the flower top looks like the Star of David from above, expressing Jewish tradition. From the front the flowers look different in size (from the oldest to the youngest), while from the back look the length of the flowers are the same showing that each child is equal to his older generation. Each child is different and that is why each leaf is different. The top of the flowers top can be removed for cleaning after use. The stems of the flowers can be turned to show either the English or Hebrew name on the front.
