From the Museum of Turkish Jews: ´Shviti´

Shviti (שויתי in Hebrew), are meditative representations of a menorah used in some Jewish communities to ponder on God's name. Generally, they are placed on the Tevah which is the platform where the prayer is led by the Hazzan. An embellished Parochet or a Mizrah Gobelin or a special illustrated page from Siddur with a similar image might also serve for the same purpose.

Shviti takes place in the museum collection.
