Art Nouveau Animals

2 December, 2010

a Sea Serpent lamp and Ferret wallpaper from the Bröhan-Museum in Berlin.  This sharp fanged monster and the bushy tailed rodent* aren’t everyone’s idea of pleasant décor, but to each his own*.

*’said the woman as she kissed the cow’, to borrow a favorite phrase of MJC
*Ferrets are not rodents, as pointed out to the author by one of her Diligent readers.

    These are really neat. I love the serpent light fixture holder, with the power cord being regurgitated by the serpent to eternally power the lamp. Poor serpent.
