Nasrid lantern (Granada).
In Nasrid Granada (14th-15th century), these oil lamps, heirs of the lucernas of Ancient Rome, were used to illuminate homes. The lamps were not only valued for their practicality, they also represented the symbol of the battle of light over darkness. They were therefore an essential part of the household furnishings.
