Unique red-orange 12-inch ceiling lantern with amazing radiance from single 40 watt candelabra bulb suspended inside. Lantern is embellished with multiple layers of red and yellow adhesive solution with red, green and purple rayon fibers embedded within the layers. The spherical shape is made with 120 identical interlocking origami units of high-strength translucent parchment paper. Lantern is supported by sturdy nylon struts attached to power chord above suspended light socket. Pentagon openings cut into lantern at the top and bottom allow for ample ventilation from heat of bulb. Lantern is ideal for dimmer switch varying intensity of light and dramatic changes in illumination (dimmer not included - available on request). Comes with 40 watt candelabra bulb, lantern bracket and 15 foot white power chord.

Pictures cannot do justice to the quality of light and appearance of Golden Heart Illumination lanterns. The lanterns themselves are an interesting sculptural art form with infinite variety of color density and surface texture within each unit. When illuminated, the appearance changes dramatically with light intensity (adjusted by dimmer switch or varying bulb wattage), and with changing the ambient lighting where the lantern resides. The structure of the folded, woven and layered paper lantern is remarkably strong because of the intrinsic geodesic skeleton and multiple layers of translucent shoji paper bound by durable translucent adhesive into a sturdy cohesive unit. It can be bounced like a basketball with minimal damage and guaranteed to last for years. You will not be disappointed with this beautiful one-of-a-kind light sculpture.
