The Spinning Top Dreidel was inspired by the wood spinning tops of the Far East.
The four sides of The Windows of Hanukkah Dreidel are embossed with the
Hebrew letters nun, gimmel, heh, shin or pe, the initials of the sentence “ness
gadol hayah sham (or poh),” a great miracle happened there (or here), a reference
to the miracle of the oil. The artist aim’s was to create a dreidle telling the story
of the miracle. The dreidel, a brass cube structure with four windows, reveals the
story as it is spun. In each window, a scene is hand-painted on parchment. The
dreidel spins on its trapeze axle, which mirrors another on a stone base. The stone
is quarried from the very land of that story it tells.
Each work is signed by the artist and is available in a limited edition.
