In the Darkest hours of the second world war, America needed a symbol, something that could form a rallying cry for the American people to gain both strength and hope from. And something to put fear into the hearts of the enemies of freedom. That symbol turned out to be Captain America, the only successful product of an American Super Soldier program. What was supposed to be the first of an army of super strong inspiring soldiers, turnout to be the one symbol behind which the men and women of the armed services and the civilians back home could look to to inspire them to greatness, super powers or not.
This lamp depicts 4 different characters from the Captain America universe. While there are many such characters, I tried to boil it down to the ones that form our view of the character the most.
In the First panel, is of course the man himself, Captain America. This is a profile of The Cap. as played by Chris Evans in the recent Captain America and Avengers Movies.
In The next panel we have the ultimate spymaster and Leader of the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division (S.H.I.E.L.D.) Nick Fury. Having lost the use of his left eye in unknown service to his country, Nick Fury continues to defend his country while inspiring his operatives and Captain America to fight evil around the world.
Next we have The sharpest of sharpshooters, Hawkeye! A man so skilled in marksmanship, he is deadlier with a bow and arrow then a dozen men armed with the latest in firearm technology.
Last but certainly not least I give you The Black Widow, A former Soviet assassin. The woman born Natasha Ramanova grew up trained by some of the most level spy's, assassins and agents in the cold war. All grown up and now an agent for freedom, The Black Widow fights alongside Captain America and her long time partner and friend Hawkeye.
The Top of the lamp depicts Captain America as he crashed through a wall with his shield.
Please understand that each lamp is custom made, so the wood grains or shade will vary from the picture. But I do work to make sure each side matches on any individual lamp. Each Lamp is approximately 6” on a side and 12” tall. Each comes with a 6’ cord with an inline switch. The socket is either for an E12 AKA candelabra bulb or a regular bulb (not included). The wire is rated to 75 watts but to avoid heat buildup only high efficiency CFL or LED bulbs around 5 watts (60+ Watt equivalent) should be used. The wood is 5mm pine or sandalwood ply with a rice paper backing to provide for a wonderful contrast. The wood ships unfinished to allow the natural grain to shine, But you can stain or otherwise finish the wood relatively easily to your liking. I designed them so that once the panels are slid into the base the base cannot be removed, but for bulb changing the top can be pulled off relatively easily. Each Lamp can be made and shipped usually within three days to a week of ordering. But that time really depends on how many orders I am working on. I ship using USPS priority with the US...I can ship internationally for special requests but the shipping rate will depend on the details.
The entire Lamp is designed to be flat packed for ease of shipping but is simple to assemble.
