A Two Million Year Old Lamp? Well...

Add a little excitement to your living room with the wild Uttermost Tamil Musicians Table Lamp. The musicians sit atop an elephant as they ride below the rectangular linen box shade. The base is finished in an olive bronze with a verdigris glaze to make this piece a charming addition to any room.

The musicians featured are part of the Tamil people - an ethnic group native to India and Sri Lanka with a recorded history dating back more than two million years. With a classical music tradition that is shared throughout Southern India, the Tamil musicians are a strong aspect of the culture.

With all that history, the table lamp is sure to be a crowd pleaser, but if the lamp itself isn't cool enough for you, at least the cultural lessons that come along with it are something to tell your friends about!
