Ancient Lamps of the Holy Lands
An essay following the development of lamps in the Holy Land from their humble beginnings as simple bowls, to spouted vessels, to decorated symbols of wealth, spirituality and even indulgence. Notable is how the evolution of lamps is closely tied to that of pottery techniques - the most popular medium. Other media include bronze and glass. The influence of various cultures and religions on the lamps of the region is explored. Of special interest is the removal of craven decoration from vessels in accordance with the second commandment.
