The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

I did something similar to that about five years ago, It was made using spare white LED Christmas lights and a bunch of old brass clock parts. Was quite effective and gave a pleasant lighting effect in a dark corner of the room. I used it a lot, but the LEDS began to dim somewhat after about three years of near daily use.

Wish I had taken pics now, as I dismantled it just before last Christmas to reuse the large glass dome and silver plated frame and base for another project.  Undecided

I did something similar, too, using a large glass globe (looks like a big fishing float, but with a large hole in the bottom) and white solar string lights.  I liked it best with the lights programmed for a slow fade in and out.  The lights are now on a palm tree in my front yard.  I suppose I could use a colored string...oooh, maybe purple!

Very pretty! Coloured lights, or, even better, variegated coloured lights would be nice, too! Grin
