“Maim Acronym” with Sprinkler and Grass (Fingerbowl water)
Tradition dictates the ritual washing of finger tips of all remaining food before Grace after Meals. The design features a sprinkle that contains the water in the nickel pipe. To use the sprinkler you pull it out from its place in the AstroTurf and pure water on your tip of your fingers. The verse (Psalm 23) is cut out from around the gold plate base and describing our wish to be rest upon green meadows that will become more green by our water of fullfiling the Mitzvah.
