People have always been fascinated by the light of a perfect circle. The returning full moon and the natural phenomena ascribed to it (higher childbirth percentage, fertility, transformation from human to animal, etc.), the archetypical form of an UFO, the shape of a gong, the sun and more are but a few striking examples.
Despite its shape of a full circle (full moon), the lamp can be used in several positions: horizontally, diagonally, obliquely or vertically (fool moon). Thanks to its large dimensions, the lamp is easily recognisable and has the possibility of demarcating or creating spaces. The lamp also had a highly symbolic value due to its imposed abstraction.
