She really wants a picture of a Japanese girl in a traditional spring kimono with an autumn background wearing a western winter hat? Wow! That's a mix. Is her heart set on the background, or is it the girl that she really wants?
I'll give it a shot if I get some time.
i said "nothing but her Christmas hat on" and not "nothing but her Christmas hat and a dodecahedron on"!
tsk tsk tsk.
Heh. Despite the fact that Michaelangelo's David is so famous and widely viewed, I didn't want to post it in its unadulterated form for fear of offending someone.
So, I added the dodecahedron to censor David and also to convey who David was representing. But then I thought some more and figured someone might misinterpret the dodecahedron hanging off the front of David, so I added an additional "Censored" tag to try to make it clear what was going on. Walking the fine line isn't always easy and I'm not always successful.

You have taken it as I intended it. And you are welcome.

I liked the idea when I first thought of it, but frankly I'm not very happy with its execution. It looks more like an afterthought tacked onto the corner of the picture rather than an extension of the taxi-way guide lights that it actually is. Oh well.
Thanks for the links regarding the Menorah (although the second one escapes me
). It is interesting to learn that it represents the burning bush through which God spoke to Moses. Perhaps more interesting is that once the original temple in Jerusalem was destroyed, the Menorah no longer has a formal place in Jewish prayer services or rituals. I guess the emphasis is on "formal".
