Architectonic Menorah by Richard Meier for The Jewish Museum, 2010

The design commemorates 4,000 years of Jewish history. Its pewter architectonic candleholders represent locations of Jewish expulsion, hardship and remarkable perseverance. From left to right, the first five candleholders represent the expulsions from Egypt (the obelisk); Roman Palestine (Hadrian’s victory column); France (1310); England (1290); and Spain (1492). The sixth candleholder represents the emancipation of Jews and expansion of the Jewish population in Vienna circa 1890. The seventh symbolizes the pogroms in Russia at the turn of the 20th century, and the eighth is a reminder of the concentration camps in Germany during WWII. A copy of the menorah resides in Mr. Meier’s home and is still used by the architect during the holidays.
