VINTAGE LAMP Beautiful Pair Chinese hand painted Pangu Lamps on Giltwood Base. The lamps feature a figure Pangu who is an ancient Chinese deity considered to be the first living being and creator of the world, hand painted in a translucent blue glaze.Pangu is said to have been born from an egg that held the entire cosmos. When he eventually broke free, he released the universe and created the earth and sky. As one of the oldest stories in Chinese mythology, Pangu's myth has countless variations; many of these retellings follow one of three basic storylines. Pangu is comprised of the Chinese characters pán, meaning to "coil, " and gu. When he was inside the egg containing the entirety of the universe, Pangu slept in a curled up position due to space limitations.
Pangu's name, therefore, denotes both his ancientness and the unusual circumstances of his birth. In alternative systems of romanization, his name is written as P'an-ku.This item is in the category "Collectables\Lamps, Lighting\Lamps".
