Geometric lantern

This is another one of the many stone lanterns in the garden. This one is located on the corner of a platform area on the far side of the garden next to the lake. It's in the area that represents the village, the more formalized area of the garden.

The lantern isn't very large, but it really appealed to me because it's so different than the others. The base is basically a circle. The top part makes it look traditional, yet the geometric bottom makes it seem modern at the same time.

Based on this original
