Physical Description

Mouldmade plastic lamp in the form of a man riding a dolphin. The man is a winged god figure with a lotus bloom behind him. He appears to be wearing a helmet or Phrygian cap. He holds a bud in his raised right hand and wears a cloak. The drapes of the cloak are the only decoration on the otherwise plain back. Rounded, flat-topped nozzle with a small wick hole protrudes from dolphin's mouth. Filling hole is between the figure's legs. The lamp stands unsteadily on an oval base, ringed by two incised lines.
