    That is most excellent. I just  looked through an number of his other works. Everything is stunning, but this is my favorite.

    Found about a 100 pieces of Donovan’s work for sale here: They also give a detailed look at the Shiva Mandala that was featured on boingboing several months back.

    It’s probably a huge hassle to keep the wax from dripping into the tassels.

     The symbols give it an esoteric feeling that really stimulate my imagination. I can’t stop trying to invent a  context for lamp like this. It  has an “otherworldly plausibility” to it, as though it were an artefact from another reality.

    • “Lamp and another reality”?! Have you seen that story from reddit about the guy who had an accident here and then spent 10 years living an entire life in an alternate reality, only to be drawn back into this one by the weird and unsettling visions he had about a strange red lamp? I can’t find it right now, but very odd story.

    Hey, wasn’t there just a post about Italian horror? This looks like a set piece from Suspiria. I am in love with it.  When I get a black-walled room covered in gold calligraphy and occult symbols, I will put this right next to my neon peacock.

    At a quick glance, I though it was a Jim Woodring product. Those would be a great addition to any home!
