Steamroller-Tractor by Avi Biran

For the Clearing of Chametz (leaven) before the advent of Passover

The blessing "Who did command us to burn the leaven" is sawed out from the shovel and the saying "All manner of leaven that is in my possession, that which I have not seen, as well as that which I have not removed shall hereby be annulled, and accounted as the dust of the earth." is sawed out from the back wheel. The pipes serve as candle and feather holders. The steamroller back wheel ensures the crushing of all unfound leaven into the dust of the earth. This beautiful piece was created by Avi Biran.
