Abstract sumi e painting, Zen style, print with ink wash, wet and dry brushstrokes by Marilyn Wells was inspired by the Hanukkah Menorah, from 1of 2 Abstract Sumi e paintings where I celebrate the Jewish Holiday.

Hanukkah is a Jewish holiday that lasts for eight nights, usually in November or December.

Also known as the Festival of Lights or the Feast of Dedication, the holiday celebrates the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem following the Maccabean revolt against the Syrian-Greek army. Rabbinic tradition states the victorious Maccabees could only find an amount of oil to keep the commemorative Menorah lit for one night. However, the Menorah miraculously stayed lit for eight nights.

The most common tradition of Hanukkah is the lighting of a commemorative menorah. Menorahs are lit with a primary candle first, and that candle is used to light an additional candle for each night. So for the first night, the primary candle and an additional candle are lit, the second night two additional candles are lit, and so on throughout the eighth night. Candles are added to the menorah from right to left but lit each night from starting with the left-most candle.

Judaic blessings are often chanted before and during the process.

 This is a Limited Edition Fine Art Print, numbered and signed, made from archival, museum quality giclée ink on hot press, acid-free 100% cotton rag media with a fine-tooth surface. Each will have an additional 1/4” white border to accommodate most framing needs, or which you can cut off if you wish. It is packaged in a crystal clear envelope with a sturdy back board for shipping and framing protection.

Each print will be hand signed on the back by the artist along with a stamp of authentication.

For all prints, expect 10 business days working time, as each is hand printed just before shipping, although usually less time is needed. Contact me for any other questions.
