The pomegranates embellishing this elegant menorah evoke a 17th-century British depiction of the Tree of Life in the Museum's holdings. This uniquely embroidered canvas textile (first half 17th century) showcases the divine tree, introduced in the Book of Genesis, miraculously bearing multiple species of fruits. The artisan's addition of animals and celestial bodies likewise alludes to the idyllic abundance in the Garden of Eden. This menorah holds candles with a 5/16-inch diameter.

Award-winning visionary Michael Aram creates one-of-a-kind jewelry and home decor. Informed by his training in painting, sculpture, and art history, each design is a celebration of artisanship, inspired by exquisite natural forms and cultural traditions. The Armenian American artist established a studio in India following a perspective-altering visit, and the nation's rich heritage of handcrafting has been a profound influence on his work for over 30 years.
