Physical description

A very large brown metal lamp. It has a round central barrel shape with a large glass lens at the front. The interior behind the glass is conical and painted in a reflective silver colour. The central barrel shape is attached to a rectangular base with small holes on the sides and back. Above the central barrel is a square section with a circular cone shape above it at the very top. There are small regularly spaced holes throughout this top section, however the top of the cone is dome shaped with a dent in it.
