Something about a lantern reminds of a mystery. This little light that you can carry close to you guides you through the dark into a revelation, it inspires but can be scary also. It is probably the curious cat in me but it seems elegant in a way. Of course although you can light a pathway while still it is useful lighting a room or whatever you need might be.
This simple lantern is in the Indian style 13nches x 13 inches (L) x 8 inches (H)
