The artist designed an Omer (“new wheat”) counter reminiscent of a millstone
used to grind the wheat or barley. A round smooth cylinder shaped Jerusalem
stone was chosen for the body of the piece. Ancient Hebrew lettering is carved
around the stone, each line representing one day of the Omer. A sterling silver or
brass with a patina finish structure cradles the stone. A wood base with a set of
four wheels allows the stone to spin with ease. A window with the current day
of the Omer is displayed.
