View of one of the repositioned columns 5 ft. [1.5 m.] high that graced the raised platform.
On the left (east) side of the column—from bottom to top—note the vase and how a grape vine with grapes, leaves, and tendrils are well represented. Also note the heads of grain flanking the vase.
On the right (north facing side)—from bottom to top—note the floral and geometric patterns that are crowned by a seven branch candelabra—a menorah. For a detailed view of the menorah click here.
