Babel Lamp

Nicolas Aubagnac
€3,000.00 Available

This lamp evokes the unfinished tower, erected in the city of Babel, as found in the Book of Genesis - a marvel or a malediction?

Dimensions: H 49 cm |H 19.3"
Materials: solid bronze
Original French design and production

A tribute to the mythical architecture of humanity, the Babel lamp stretches out as if reaching for the heavens.

The stepped levels of the base formed from truncated cylinders seem to be arranged haphazardly, evoking a chaotic divine retribution. They offer a striking contrast to the power and solidity of the solid bronze.

This work reflects the artist’s attraction to the universal forms of ancient architecture.
