Brutalist iron and natural Jerusalem stone menorah sculpture by David Palombo.

  • Hand-forged with nine textured iron prongs, in different heights, the Shamash standing the tallest.
  • Each prong is pierced with a natural stone from Jerusalem.
  • David Palombo (Turkish, 1920–1966) was a sculptor and painter who immigrated to Israel with his parents in 1923.
  • Palombo began his studies at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, and became a student of sculptor Ze’ev Ben-Zvi in 1942, later becoming an assistant at Ben-Zvi’s studio and teaching at Bezalel.
  • Palombo’s known works include the gates to the memorial building at Yad Vashem (1960) and the gates to the Knesset; the latter were created shortly before his premature death.
  • This piece is final sale and not eligible for return.
