Belts of varying colors represent the levels of the five Karate figures in this menorah. If you know someone who loves karate, this is will be a unique Chanukah gift them. The stained glass figures are hand cut, wrapped in metal, and soldered. Arms and feet are added as well as wire detail for the shirts. The hand positions of karate images have been used to form the hands and positions of these figures as well. The figures are soldered in a row onto the base and supported by the karate poles. The candle holder bar is added with nine candle holders, one for each of the eight nights of Chanukah and the other for the Shammos, the candle that lights the other candles each night. The candles are in a straight row with the Shammos slightly higher. This positioning defines a kosher menorah.
