This elegant triple lamp is delicately carved, incised, and polished from one block of alabaster.

The central cup is shaped like a lotus chalice, rising on a long stem, and is flanked by two smaller bud-like cups on sinuous stems, each with a leaf spreading out horizontally, as if they were floating on the surface of the water.

The cups would once have contained wicks floating on oil, traces of which were preserved inside.

Dimensions:  Height 26.8 cm
