The Fall of the Damned Pendant Lampshade

Lighting doesn't always have to be obviously odd or twisted. Sometimes you can have lighting such as this Fall of the Damned pendant lampshade that appears perfectly elegant upon first glance but soon gives way to a much more sadistic meaning.

The lampshade features a collective of naked bodies writhing together in utter agony as they fall into the depths of Hell. The lampshade, inspired by Dante and Rubens is a morbid but beautiful display.

The lampshade is a limited edition of 40. With all the detail and work that went into the design and creation it is obvious that it is not cheap. It is currently being sold for $45,000.
