Ancient Mayan Suspended Lighting Fixture

That’s no artifact you’ve got your eyes fixed on there, that’s a genuine Studio Italia Design lighting fixture! Channeling the fantastic design sense of these elder-peoples Southern-Americans, Studio Italia takes this suspended light fixture and creates a geometric honeycomb shape made with a lacquered metal frame. I wonder what you think of such channelling : are you foe or are you against?

There’s no denying that this particular fixture is a nice work of design. Loads of people will buy it and hang it in their house for many good years chillin in light into the future. What I’d like to know is: all you Mayan descendants out there, how does this jingle your jangle?

I’m thinking about those groups of people who celebrate the ancient tribes of Mayans. If they hang this in their home amongst other celebratory wall decorations, colors, framed works, does it look like it belongs? Or does it look like it’s totally out of place, reaching for what it’s not?

Or does it belong only in homes that otherwise have little or nothing to do with the stair-stepping culture?

Olmec? What wha what would you do?
