By day, this Sun and Moon Mosaic Solar Lantern is a colorful centerpiece for an outdoor table, and by night it takes on a whole new look. Vibrantly colorful pieces of glass are arranged in centuries-old mosaic style to create the image of a spiral-patterned sun embraced by a golden moon. All day long, the discreet solar panel absorbs the sun's energy to power an internal light after dark. Once the sun in the sky goes down, the sun and moon on this solar lantern take over, creating a warm, colorful light show for your outdoor spaces.
The mosaic art form, as demonstrated on this sun and moon solar lantern, dates back to the second half of the 3rd century BC. Artists in Mesopotamia used pieces of shell, ivory and colored stones to create decorative patterns on the walls of temples. Beginning in the 4th century BC, mosaic art was used to create figures and illustrate mythological stories and fables. From the 6th to 15th centuries AD, mosaic art flourished in Byzantine culture where churches were heavily decorated with mosaics of Bible stories and characters.
The mosaic on this sun and moon solar lantern is a lovely contemporary representation of the form. The colors are vibrant and the design artistic. This lantern will look lovely on any outdoor (or indoor) table simply as a centerpiece, but its added functionality as a light will add wonder to your evening and charm your guests.
