If as I do, you spend all your time in Venice spying out historically or culturally significant artefacts, whether as small as a gondola decoration or as grandiose as the Palazzo Ducale, you begin to assume everything has a back story.

This becomes amplified when in the Ghetto, for now you have two cultures vying for attention, and anything you come across could be important to either.

I spotted this basket of dried flowers there, I think outside a kosher restaurant.  A basket of flowers is not that remarkable, but why was it that particular shape?

Does it have some religious significance?

Or did the proprietor just like the design?
