Fusioni d’arte 3v di Walter Vaghi, Origgio

This lamp is in the shape of two big hands with the fingers held wide apart, joined together by a single thumb that acts as the shamash. The tips of the nine fingers extend upwards like small stylized flames, becoming the supports for the traditional candles. The artist’s signature is engraved clearly on the left of the work, which stands on a rectangular base. This is an extremely good example of the visual synthesis typical of Topor’s poetic invention. Several elements (fingers and hands) become one and recall the iconography of a blessing hand.
