Lamp with painted flower design waiting to be discovered.August 26, 2022
I found this lamp with flower motive in the field near Aras de los Olmos, a small village in the Serrania in Spain. There is a strange irony in this find. The lamp invented to create some light in the dark with it's design of wild flowers. Laying hidden in the high grass, a place where perhaps the wild flowers where the design was based upon once grew.
It's a bright summer day and the lamp is obviously not necessary! But by the looks of it the flower design candelabra has been there for a while.
Questions start to arise when looking at this photo. Who had this lamp once in their house? How did it end up in the field? Who made it and when and where was it sold.
The striking contrast between the man made object and its surrounding contrast the many similarities as the golden colour of the grass reflects the copper of the arms of the candelabra.
