I agree with Frank’s explanation about the “lowered” servant light of the Hanukiah regardless some readers may have failed to see it.
My friend has a Hanukiah at home that the servant light is in front of the other 8 by a couple of inches. So the servant light appeared to be higher than the others if viewed from below.
Checkout this website yourself. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menorah_(Hanukkah)
As both picture show the servant light taller than the others yet actually they are the same height.
Do you see what I see. Happy Hanukah.
