Smiling Star of David

On the bottom right Chanukah dice there's a cute Smiling Magen David - the first I've seen so far, although it looks so familiar that I feel I've seen it all my life.
This is another instance of the frequent appearance of the menorah next to the six pointed star. The first joint appearance of these two main Jewish symbols had been in the Tabernacle , according to Uri Ofir's research.
