Third Night of Hanukkah

Mahjong tiles rendered in lucite. Sorry for the glare; hard to photograph with flash. The tiles are approximately actual size, making the whole thing about twelve inches long and three inches high at the shammas.


This one definitely qualifies as “cool.” There was actually another version of this made of actual mahjong tile material (solid white; probably plastic. I think real tiles can be made of ivory) but it was recalled because it turned out the material was a fire hazard! Apparently more than one of them caught fire when filled with candles and lit.
