Holiday: Eight Lights for Eight Nights Eight Lights for Eight Nights

The candles represent any group of individuals, families, peoples or nations united in Peace.
Perhaps the candles might even represent people wearing brightly colored robes walking through the desert.
An interesting 3 dimensional effect is created with this very unique, contemporary interpretation of the traditional eight-branched Chanukah menorah, also known as a Chanukiah. The ninth candle, or shamash, is used to light the other candles--one for each night of Chanukah.
Spacers are placed behind all collage pieces, which, under bright light creates interesting shadows on the textured, watercolor paper background. It may appear as if the candles are actually flickering. All collage pieces are individually hand-painted, cut and arranged by the Artist.
Sonoma Grape Dance II Nina paints these vibrant, abstract watercolors on location in California wine country.
