Menorah, Shardz Suspended Light Linear 12”Hx6”Wx5”D
The breaking of a glass during the Jewish wedding ceremony is one of the most celebrated traditions. It can be interpreted in many ways. Some consider the frailty of the non-tempered glass as a symbol of the frailty of human relationships. Even as a couple marries and strengthens their bond, it reminds us of the care required to maintain this tenuous connection. As a symbol of the destruction of the Holy Temple, the glass reminds us of sadness even in the most joyous of occasions. Once the glass has been broken, it cannot be mended and therefore reflects the permanence of marriage. $25 shipping includes shipping shards to artist, then to whomever customer indicates.
