FLOWER DETAILS - FROM THE MAX STERN COLLECTION, PART 1 
These flowers are part of a silver spice box in YU Museum’s dazzling Max Stern Collection of Judaica.  Spice boxes are a typical and often decorated form of Judaica sculpture. They are used during Hazdalah, the ceremony that marks the end of the Sabbath, and the fragrant spices in the box help to rouse our souls as we transition into what Elvis Costello referred to as the “Working Week.”
