Richard Meier Vienna Mezuzah
This product is not available.
Adapted from Richard Meier's Hanukkah Lamp, 1985
Award-winning architect Richard 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.”
The VIENNA mezuzah represents the emancipation of Jews and the expansion of the Jewish population in Vienna circa 1890. Made in the USA. Scroll sold separately.
