Seven-branched candelabrum

Seven-branched candelabrum

Its design reflects the idea of roots, the invisible part of nature that anchors and nourishes the rest of the plant. The element of the design is to recreate the idea of God the Creator and Sustainer of all things. Its asymmetry reflects the movement of the Holy Spirit that moves without following schemes nor known directions. Its design includes seven branches that resemble the Menorah, the famous candelabrum of King David in the Jewish tradition. The candelabrum, when placed inside the temple, was a symbol of the constant presence of God in the place. Each taper stick candelabrum measures 70 cm, a number that represents God in the Jewish tradition. The highest point of the candelabrum is a lily-shaped flower that in the Bible is described as the most beautiful creation, which in the candlestick becomes the fruit of divine expression.
