Lithuanian artist and craftsman Vainius Kubilius transforms coconut shells into radiant jewels that cast dazzling patterns of light and shadow in every direction. Kubilius’ awesome handmade lamps are called Nymphs and each one is unique. Made of coconut, cork and suede, they have a wonderfully organic feel.
To create his illuminated coconuts, Kubilius carefully shaves and waxes each hollowed out shell. Then comes the painstaking process of drilling thousands of holes in intricate patterns, much like the amazing eggshell art we’ve featured here in the past. The lamp stands are wrapped in layers of suede and varnished cork.
Kubilius makes each lamp by hand in Vilnius, Lithuania, but something tells us that if you found the right map hidden in the false bottom of an old trunk at that one flea market, it might lead you to the secret grove where these radiant creatures grow. And when you aren’t looking they communicate with each other by intertwining their bodies and moving their coconut shell heads to alter the patterns and intensity of light and shadow. It’s just a hunch.

I went to the state fair today for the first time today.
And this was painted on the side of a ride.
No reference anywhere on the ride itself.
