Triangle Art Yahrzeit Candle Holder
This custom ceramic yahrzeit candle holder was created by the artist Rosanna. The art is based on the system of colored triangular patches devised by the Nazi regime to identify and segregate prisoners inside the concentration camps. The art also includes a representation of the yellow star patch worn by Jews outside the camps. This design, according to the artist, reimagines these symbols of oppression in a kaleidoscopic rainbow of strength, solidarity, and hope. Each piece honors those imprisoned for their identity and celebrates their life. The candle holder comes in a custom gift box with a standard yahrzeit candle.
Yahrzeit candles are lit on the anniversary of a loved one’s death as well as on certain holidays. They are intended to be long burning.
