Product Description

Presenting the “Horus Table Lamp” by Eichholtz, inspired by a commanding statue of the god Horus protecting King Nectanebo II (360–343 B.C.) in The Met’s Egyptian art collection. This lamp pays tribute to the pharaoh’s deep connection with Horus, the falcon god of kingship. Their association even gave rise to a cult, in which he was referred to as “Nectanebo-the-Falcon.” This regal lamp, which boasts a copper-bronze finish and a linen-mix shade crafted in the Netherlands, stands at a height of 90 cm., with a maximum width of 50 cm. Illuminate your space with the majestic aura of ancient Egypt.

HISTORIC PROVENANCE

The Table Lamp Horus draws direct inspiration from a meta-greywacke sculpture of the god Horus protecting King Nectanebo II. Part of the Egyptian art collection at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the sculpture, dating to 360–343 B.C., speaks to the pharaoh’s deep—if not merging—connection to Horus, the falcon god of kingship. Nectanebo II was even referred to as “Nectanebo-the-Falcon.” The original statue’s strong, noble form has been reproduced for the Table Lamp Horus in a copper-bronze finish and a linen-mix shade handmade in the Netherlands.
