The Babel lamp refers to the unfinished biblical tower where there was a confusion of tongues, victims of their ambition. However, this time the perspective is different: the entire robust body is perfectly finished, the tower is complete and shines with insolent convening power. Solely using solid or hollow alabaster was considered an affront to predominant trends at the time. Alabaster was seen as a distasteful material, without the constructive strength of marble or the translucent nobility of onyx, and it was scantly used to create the small dire kitsch sculptures that flourished as a souvenir among the early tourists.
On account of the process of craftsmanship, no two units are identical; however, every single one stands as a clear illustration of an evening têteà-tête. A spectacular and superbly striking lamp that evokes all manner of secrets, even among the most hush hush tongues.
