If, like me, you have recently been watching a whole marathon of Christmas movies due to get in the spirit of the holidays, you will instantly recognize the inspiration behind the Star Wars Leg Lamp.
This masterpiece lighting, created by Gordon Tarpley is a mashup of two cult classic movies: A Christmas Story and, of course, Star Wars. The lamp consists of an R2-D2 head that works as its lampshade and a base that is an oversized golden C-3P0 leg. This robotic furnishing is emulating the leg lamp that the father in A Christmas Story specially orders and proudly displays in the living room.
While the man’s wife destroyed the original leg lamp out of jealousy, the Star Wars Leg Lamp is too beautiful to smash into pieces.
