About the lamp
The lamp is made of a dry gourd attached to the wooden base. Decorated with painting, drilling, carving, and pyrography. The surface is painted with oil finish and wax, which emphasize natural shine, color, and texture of the surface. The wooden stand is an average of 19 cm, making the steady lamp base. The stand is made of an old tree (Celtis australis) over 150 years old that still grows near the Evangelical church in Kovačica… the small town, which is known to the world as the capital of Naive art.
This lamp is made to have two perspectives. By day you can enjoy the natural shape and decoration of the gourd. By night this object D’art transforms into a lamp which through the shadowplay reflects the artwork on the environment. Carved ornaments on the gourd add the unique see-through effect. The lamp is made to produce decorative lighting and to make the atmosphere of your home even cozier.
