Rare Huge Finest Bronze Empire 3-light 18 candle Chandelier with Apollo Figure, early 1900.
Beautiful 40 kilo bronze chandelier, tells the (hi)story - Mythologgy of Apollo....Greek god of Music, Prophecy, Healing and later the Sun.
The three female heads on each side of this chandelier are probably that of `Artemis' (Apollo's twin sister) or `Athena' (Apollo's mother). The ropes, the lions and the Pythons also each have their place in the life of Apollo.... according to Greek Mythology. Why does this chandelier have three arms? `The power of three is universal and is the tripartide nature of the world as heaven, earth, and waters. It is human as body, soul and spirit. Three is birth, life, death. It is the beginning, middle and end. Three is a complete cycle unto itself. It is past, present, future'. Nothing on this rare (and probably unique) chandelier is put there without reason. Three is also what this chandelier itself is about: its beauty of shape (=form), its content or meaning AND its practical use.
