Here's a lamp I made.  The lamp base is repurposed, starting out as shiny brass, then spray painted bronze.  I cut an old globe in half, added fringe and it became the shade. 

Wa-la!

I could do something like this. What about tiny holes in the major cities so light shines out of them...would that work? I'll have to think about this one. Thanks for the great idea.
