A Smoking Menorah

Thank you for the lovely photo of the “seven-branched menorah on the zebra’s side.” But unless I’m miscounting, it’s a nine-branched menorah. It’s beautiful, nevertheless, with the trails of smoke floating away from the extinguished lamps. I hope the picture hasn’t been photo-shopped.
