Although I can appreciate the artistic message and a certain ominous beauty, I honestly have no idea why anyone would hang this "the fall of the damned" lampshade in their home -- it's downright creepy. From a distance it appears as an interesting and intricate ornament, but up close the shapes focus into individual bodies twisted in fear as they fall to their doom -- frozen amidst shadows and plays of light from within. By Luc Merx for the mgx 'Private Collection,' the detail and feeling evoked by this piece is remarkable. Available in white only and in a limited edition of only 40 pieces, it's priced at $46,200.
