 The Nasrani Menorah, also known as the Mar Thomas Cross. The six branches, (three branches on either side of the cross) represent God as the burning bush, while the central branch holds the cross. A stylistic dove at the top of the cross represents the holy spirit. In all, there are seven branches in the icon, representing the Jewish menorah and the Christian cross.
   The Nasrani menorah is part of the Christian-Jewish tradition of the Nasrani people of Kerala, South India.
