These tall candlesticks are Israeli designer Laura Cowan's interpretation of the columns from King Solomon's Temple. The right column was named Jachin, which means 'to establish' and the left was named Boaz, which means 'in strength.' Because there has been no conclusive archeological evidence discovered, no one knows exactly how the original columns looked. It is thought they were cast in solid bronze and measured 6 feet in diamater and 27 feet high.
 
Cowan created her own interpretation using her signature cone design and highly polished aircraft quality aluminum. She signs each piece.
 
Contemporary Jewish artist and judaica designer Laura Cowan is a graduate of Silversmithing and Jewellery at London Guildhall University, and now lives in Israel.
