Deck Prisms

In the days before electricity, light below a vessel’s deck was limited to candles, oil and kerosene lamps. A clever solution for the light problem was the deck prism. Laid flush into the deck, the prism point drew light down below decks.

I set this reproduction on a light box and shot on the same plane as the base. This was submitted for my 365 Project.
