Nothing but Chandeliers: Context and Meaning

I am currently off traveling and taking interesting pictures I hope.  This week’s topic is chandeliers.   I don’t own a chandelier but they have always mesmerized me with their graceful Siva-like arms and multiple lights.  There were lots of ornate  glass chandeliers in Venice-in the shops, in hotels and theaters and in public places.  Not so many in Singapore but those I did see reminded me that it was a colony for hundreds of years. Why? A different context? Isn’t it interesting how an ornate glass chandelier means one thing in Venice and another thing in Singapore?  As you ponder this question, here are some pictures.
