Skeleton Ceiling Light with Hanging Skulls
A bone house masterpiece!
A spooky, yet truestory: In 1870 the Austrian family of Schwarzenberg bought an old church in Sedlec, a suburb of Kutná Hora. The ossuary underneath the church contained the bones of over 40.000 people. The family employed a woodcarver, František Rint, a woodcarver to put the bone heaps into order and artistically arrange them to form decorations and furnishings for the chapel. Amongst other things he created the Schwarzenberg coat of arms, an 8 arm chandelier, garlands and even his own signature, all made of bones. This impressive Skeleton Ceiling Light is based on the Sedlec Ossuary chandelier.
The lamp is made of heavy polyresin. Five spines are hanging downwards from the top centre of the lamp, each of them carrying a skull at the end. Ribs connect the spines with each other, forming a macabre lampshade. Small skulls and finger bones hang around the outer rim of the lamp shade. The ceiling light can be hanged up using a heavy chain. The long cable features a socket-terminal strip for easy installation. The bulb fitting is size E 27. Use a robust hook in a wall plug for min 10 kg carrying capacity for this approx. 3,5 kg light. Add the Wall Light "Praying Reaper", the Light Up Skull White and the Candlestick with LED candles to your order and create a reepy ossuary scenery.
