In the Metamorphoses Apollo tells Daphne “Because thou canst not be my mistress, I espouse thee for my tree: ... and as the locks of Phoebus are unshorn, so shall perpetual green thy boughs adorn”.
(Publius Ovidius Naso, Metamorphoses, 1st century AD)

Light is framed by a crown of leaves just as laurels on the head of the ancient heroes. The leaves are laser cut from a sheet of metal. The silvered light bulb casts a crown of shadows that embroidery for walls and ceilings with light.
