This table light holder is from the Medusa Jubilee range manufactured by Rosenthal AG. It was designed by Donatella Versace in 2003. This candle holder is one of a large range of gifts produced as a collaboration between the German ceramic and glass manufacturer Rosenthal and the Italian design house Gianni Versace, beginning in 1993. The design is based on the Greek myth of Medusa, whose hair was made of snakes. The head of Medusa was often depicted on shields to ward of evil spirits.
