Lotus flowers are ancient symbols of rebirth, spiritual awakening, and purity. But in the presence of sculptural light artist Jean-Luc Godard's* exquisite lamp, all we can think about is how beautiful this one is. The lifelike petals. The brilliant color. The almost fiery inner glow. Jean-Luc had long sought a way to transform wood into natural-looking flowers. By thinly shaving maple leaf "petals," then steaming to gently bend them, he finally accomplished his goal. He carves the green pad base by hand. Lovers of botanical art and handmade wooden decor will have two things in common: they've never seen anything like it. And they love it. Handmade in Connecticut.
