A detailed view of the menorah that is on the top of one of the repositioned columns that graced the raised platform.
A close look at it reveals the seven branches of the candelabra that is placed upon a tripod. To the left of the base of the menorah an incense shovel is visible and to the right a leaf and citron—a lulav. All of these are typical of synagogue decorations.
On the left (east) side of the column the grape vine with grapes, leaves, and tendrils are clearly visible.
