Description by the artist

As in musical composition, even in craftsmanship, unexplored paths lead us to discover new melodies and shapes, so it was for this lamp that from its shape it was spontaneous to call it Puppu lamp. Puppu and lamp together.

The artwork in the Sicilian culture

By the Governance of Sicilian Artisan Foundation

U puppu (octopus in Italian) is a characteristic inhabitant of the Mediterranean Sea and very appreciated in Sicilian cuisine (its seafood salad is popular). It is, in some way, a symbol of Sicilianity being often present in different representations, tales, myths.
