The primate brain contains a unique set of neurons dedicated to the visual detection of our oldest natural predator, snakes. Millions of years of evolution have made these neurons so effective that humans often experience a petrifying sensation of danger seconds before conciously identifying a serpent in the wild.
Perhaps no other creature is so deeply ingrained into our collective imaginations as the serpent. It reappears time and again in art, symbology and mythology. The idea that this sublimely simple yet sophisticated form could inspire a line of lamps is no surprise.
The Serpent lamps are an interpretation of the biblical serpents that entice humanity with the promise of illumination.
