East-and-West Hanukkah Lamp (cast brass) – Bronze
Modeled on a Hanukkah lamp from northern Spain or southern France, ca. 1300
- This Hanukkah lamp is based on one of the earliest European prototypes, which were made of cast bronze and were meant to be suspended on a wall or behind a door. Its intriguing design weds oriental and western elements: the central rosette evokes the stained-glass windows gracing the facade of European churches, while the row of horseshoe-shaped arches is typical of Muslim architecture. This combination of western and oriental styles characterized late medieval Spain.SHOW MORE
