The Venus Pentaculum Table Lamp
Mayan & Aztec Civilization
When plotted from an Earth-centered perspective, there is a highly noticeable rhythm in the motion of Venus. After eight years, it returns to the same place in our sky on about the same date. The cycle was known to, and of great interest to, ancient peoples such as the Mayans. Today, many know it as the pentagram of Venus or the Venus Pentaculum; this beautiful celestial pattern inspired this folded lamp to come into being.
