THE KING OF SPAIN SEDER PLATE




Copyright 1992 by Avi Biran

The Seder plate, customized specifically for king Juan Carrlos the second of Spain, celebrated the occasion of the 500th anniversary & recomciliation of the expulsion of Spanish Jewry in 1492. Due to the fact that the plate was designed as a symbol of historical recomciliation between the Spanish and Jewish communities, certain motifs manifest themselves. Firstly, the Spanish armada composed of 6 sail boats are placed on the Star of David. Farther, the Star of David metamorphasizes into a fascinating desighn composed of arrows arranged in 3 layers for the Matzot, symbolizing the expulsion of the Spanish Jews from Spain. The sails of the boats are shaped into a single pomegranite fruit and the Spanish crown. The sails can open into a flower shape, thus revealing all the traditional components of the Seder plate.
