Looks really nice in B&W. I'm sure the motives are pure (nature, environment, birds?), but it looks eerily fascistic.

Thanks, Perkin-Warbeck :) and I agree - a very curious style. It's a dragon, designed by Vilhelm Dahlerup (http://www.23hq.com/dena/photo/6399689/original) in 1892 and redesigned by Adriaan Geuze from West8 (http://www.west8.nl/projects/all/america_plads/).

Thanks for those references. I found more of those dragon lights here: http://www.west8.nl/projects/design/dragonlight. I prefer classic Danish lighting to this new, creepy style.
