|Close-up showing dual shofarot matching curvature of menorah.|
The mosaic at the Samaritan synagogue at el-Khirbe has a graphically interesting device of a pair of shofarot matching the curving arms of the menorah.
The curve is echoed in the drawn curtains of the ark.
The paired shofarot and menorah is worth emulating in a modern Hanukah menorah.
What are the bands around the horns?
