“Hand Lighting Chanukah Candles” 

shows a  hand warmed by the light and heat created with the lighting of the Chanukah candles. The nighttime scene adds an ambience of spirituality .  The art piece expresses a hope of enlightenment for the world.

The ritual of lighting the candles has an interesting aspect.  The primary candle is called the Shamash and it is the first that is lit, and is then used the others starting from left to right.  Shamash was also the Sun God in Mesopotamiathe god of justice in Babylonia and Assyria and shemesh means sun in Hebrew.  All of these historical associations infer the casting of light and warmth, both physical and spiritual .

The candles are based in a simple chanukiah of stone and clay.
