Kind of creepy. Like someone is watching your every move. But this lamp is still JUST COOL.
My grandfather used to shoot rattlesnakes up on Schunnemunk Mountain (pronounced skunnymunk) in the NY Catskills. He saved their rattles and artfully mounted their mosaic patterned skins on boards over the studio doorways. We kids (back then) used to get a kick out of his rattle snake collection. Pretty weird, huh?
Weird too is the Ra desk lamp. Not your run of the mill desk lamp in terms of visual value. Like the rattlesnake, its artificial vertebrae design rattles loudly on my aesthetic scale.
Created by designer Ettore Cimini, you can get one for a measley USD$2000. Consider it an investment it art.
