From the Maker:

This lamp was made to document a time in my life: my first surgery, a knee surgery. It changed the way I look at life and shed light on a lot of things around accessibility. My quad was used as a graft for my ligament, and the larger feet on the lamp have white stitches on the quad. The lower legs represent all my loved ones who took care of me and helped me recover.
