African Table Lamp Leopard Design Suede Goatskin Shade Rescued Wood 26.5" H
This handcrafted table lamp is made using fallen branches of the Ingwe tree, rescued from the forests of South Africa. and topped with a goatskin or bovine shade with the suede side up. The artist meticulously transforms this exotic suede and leather into a leopard looking shade. The Ingwe tree is often photographed for the character it has obtained from the nibbling by elephants and giraffes.
The tripod design of the lamp with the natural shaped legs has a svelte and exotic look reminiscent of the legs of a giraffe, while making the lamp very sturdy. The wood is carved, and shaved around the natural shape and left in its natural state. Handcrafted in South Africa these lamps are a collaboration between the artist and African Art Home Decor.
