DASTAN: The Prince of Persia

In Alamut rests the beating heart of all life on earth, the Sand Glass of the Gods. Long ago, the Gods looked down on man and saw nothing but greed and treachery. And so they sent a great sand storm to destroy all, wipe clean the face of the earth. But one young girl begged the Gods to give mankind another chance offering her life in exchange. Seeing the purity within, the Gods were reminded of man’s potential for good and so they swept the sands in the Sand Glass. The Dagger was given to the girl that saved Man, making her the first Guardian.

This new floor lamp is inspired on the beautiful Tale of a Prince, a Princess and the fate of the world. “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” is based on “1001 Nights”, that tells the story of the prince Dastan that, unintentionally, unleashes the Sands of Time while in the palace at Azad. The Sands of Time ravage all that they touch, transforming humans into sand beasts and animals into sand creatures, leaving the stunning palace of the Sultan in ruins. With the Dagger of Time, the Prince gains some temporal control to aid him in his quest; among his time-manipulating capacities, he can “rewind” his mistakes as well as slow time. The Prince teams up with Farah, an Indian Princess, to reverse the release of the Sands of Time from their hourglass, and to stop the treacherous Vizier from implementing his plan to unlock the ultimate power of the Dagger of Time.

The lamp was design to capture the shape of a Sand Tornado, made with wooden boards, finished with gold foil underneath each board.

PT: Este candeeiro de pé é inspirado na linda história de um Príncipe, uma Princesa e o destino do mundo. “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” é baseado no livro “1001 Noites”, que conta a história do Príncipe Dastan que, sem querer, solta as Areias do Tempo, enquanto no palácio de Azad. As Areias do Tempo devastam tudo o que lhe toca, transformando seres humanos em bestas de areia e animais em criaturas de areia, deixando o impressionante palácio do Sultão em ruínas. Com a Adaga do Tempo, o Príncipe ganha algum controle temporal para ajudá-lo em sua busca; por entre as suas capacidades de controle do tempo, ele pode “retroceder” os seus erros assim como o alterar a velocidade temporal. O Príncipe junta-se a Farah, uma princesa indiana, para reverter a liberação das Areias do Tempo de sua ampulheta, e para deter o traiçoeiro Vizier na implementação de seu plano para destravar o poder supremo da Adaga do Tempo.

O candeeiro foi concebido para capturar a forma de um tornado de areia, feita com placas de madeira, com folha de ouro colocada por baixo de cada placa.
