ART DECO LADY LAMP BLACK TL-05E/BK is a homage to Demetre Chiparus, a Romanian born sculptor of the art deco time period. And it is based on his Dourga figurine of the late 1920s. The design features a Russian dancer dressed in a theater leotard.The dancer’s hands are raised high above her head and she is? holding a ribbon between her hands which supports a crackle glass shade.
Chiparus’ sculptures are revered and can be found in museums worldwide. A lamp based on Chiparus’ work offers a strong art deco styled design element which is worth considering as an addition to your home.
