No man is an island but this wood bell shaped chandelier might be. It’s big enough, strong enough and grand enough to stand all on it’s own. This over sized wood chandelier steals the show and you don’t even notice the table below it. Forget eating I just want to look at this chandelier. Lighting is always a key element in the design of a room and this chandelier certainly proves it. Hang this wood frame chandelier and you don’t have to worry about the table, the rug or place settings. No one will care. They will be too busy admiring the craftsmanship of this chandelier. Now back to the island.
Wood Bell Shaped Chandelier
For whom the bell tolls is a novel by Ernest Hemingway published back in 1940. It’s considered to be one of his best works along with The Old Man and the Sea. The title of the book is taken from a series of meditations and prayers on health, pain and sickness by John Donne. They were written while he was recovering from a near fatal illness. It goes like this.
No man is an island, entire of itself. Every man is a piece of the Continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less. As well as if a promontory were. As well as if a manor of thine own or of thine friend’s were. Each man diminishes me, for I am involved in mankind. Therefore, send not to know for whom the bell tolls. It tolls for thee. I think this poem speaks for itself and I will leave it up for interpretation. After all, it’s lasted this long. And so will this chandelier.
