See All Jewish Museum
This beautiful pewter mezuah adapted from part of Richard Meier's Architectonic Menorah, Hanukkah Lamp, the Toledo mezuzah represents the expulsion of the Jews from England in the year 1290. Meier writes of his Hanukkah Lamp design: “…I was trying to express the collective memory of the Jewish people. Each candleholder of the lamp is an abstracted representation of an architectural style from significant moments of persecution in the history of Jews.” Meier is an international, award-winning architect celebrated for his designs of such museums as The Getty Center in Los Angeles, the High Museum in Atlanta and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona, Spain. Meier credits such historic architects as Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright and Meis van der Rohe, as well as Bramante and Bernini, as his influences. SIZE: 4"
