A Vanity is an astonishing decorative object: a human skull! A trinket to remind you of the passage of time and the death that lies in wait for us… That makes for joy and lightness!
"Vanity of vanities, all is vanity"
Inspired by an Old Testament sentence, this skull motif appeared in the Middle Ages. But vanities were especially fashionable during the Renaissance among the humanists. Back in the day, it was fashionable to have a human skull on your desk. In the 18th century, vanities disappeared from cabinets of curiosities. In the 20th century, Cézanne brought them back to contemporary art. Since the human skull is taken a bit in all sauces. One can still wonder if hard-rock fans meditate a lot on the emptiness of human passions and activities.
For Shohan-design, Yvon Luneau interpreted this motif in his own way: with some romanticism. A floral motif brightens up the object. This makes it an original light for a contemporary decoration with a Gothic touch. On a sofa or bedside, this lamp will provide you with cozy mood lighting conducive to meditation.
