Solid, hand carved maple in matte black with bright, solid brass details. Eschewing the natural spiral of the snail for concentric disks with chamfered edges, gives the base a cubist quality.
The hand made and hand painted shade with a solid maple, hand carved frame is painted in translucent, deep honey.
The Hand holds a small, illuminated bulb on a matte black rosette. The lamp eludes to the Sufi meditative dance: As one hand is turned upward to receive the blessings of Heaven, the other hand faces downward to transfer the blessings to the earth.
This piece is One of a kind.
