    This statement pomegranate menorah by Iraqi artist Oded Halahmy is made from nickel and cast bronze. The impressive base of the menorah supports the branching arms that end in golden pomegranates. Each pomegranate is a candleholder for Hanukkah candles.

    Like countless New Yorkers who arrived from distant lands, Oded Halahmy has a rich personal history of exile, migration, and travels. Born in the old city of Baghdad in 1938, Halahmy came from a family of Orthodox Jews with deep roots in ancient Babylonian culture. Although New York has been his home for over 45 years, memories of Iraq left an indelible imprint on his life and work. Known for his dynamic yet often playful figurative sculptures in wood and bronze, he fills his work with images—albeit abstracted from reality—that evoke the landscape, architecture, and rich colors of the Middle East. Palm trees, doves, pomegranates, temples, and age-old symbols are central themes in his work. Halahmy’s work is included in the collection of the Jewish Museum.

    The Oded Halahmy pieces at the Jewish Museum Shop are a special Shop collection, not a museum exhibition.

    Fits most standard size Hanukkah candles.
