This chameleon menorah sculpture play tribute to my reptilean friend, Grog. For 8 years I shared my studio with a veiled chameleon who inspired quite a few sculptures from his perch by the window. This menorah is definitely a favorite.
Like the real lizard, this sculpture is full of color and texture. I used various blue and green glazes and washes to accentuate all the nooks and crannies of a chameleon’s skin. A rich lavender glaze on the candle holders beautifully complements the lizard’s vibrant colors . And check out the detail! The chameleon features spines, mittened toes, a curled tail and independently moving eyes. The raised candle holder sits on the lizard’s casque.
The beautiful and unique chameleon sculpture menorah measures about 10 inches long by 5 inches high and 4 inches wide. The handmade hanukkiah will be a conversation piece and cherished heirloom for many years.
Other menorah designs and custom menorahs available.
