What does the Menorah symbolize?

Among children appears an interesting question:“Which Menorah do you have in your face?”

The answer goes like this:

Two eyes, two ears two nostrils and one mouth: when we absorb good things, listening to good news and talk to benefit the other, we acctally illuminate the seven candles, seven openings in the face.
