  winged dragons, an ornate lighting example
by mrclay2000

Although I have found very few examples of what I would call the ornate "European" lamp in the United States, I sorely wish we would build more of them. Public lamps and natural water courses make for the coziest atmosphere and romantic settings, yet we seldom arrange affairs this way in the United States in general, and in Oklahoma City in particular. Most of our downtown lamps follow the style depicted, an ordinary cluster of plain spheres. In this particular example however, at least (and this is not saying much) the branches are formed of dragon's heads before ballooning into the bulbs (coincidentally, this happens to be the lighting in front of the CityChurch -- see Must See tips).
