The helmet worn by Australian folk hero Ned Kelly was the inspiration for Troy Backhouse's Ned Pendant.

Says Backhouse, "Of all the icons in Australian history, to many none are more dramatic than the helmets of the Kelly gang! The Kelly gang lighting collection is a contemporary series of tubular sculptural lights inspired by the forms of those helmets."


"The lights are laser cut from extruded aluminium tube with a satin powder-coated outer finish and an anodised or powder- coated inner finish. The Ned Pendant emits a soft, warm light through the slotted visor with a more abundant warm glow flowing from the bottom which will reflect the interior gold or other colours, enhancing the contrast against the matt black exterior."


"Bushrangers, folk heroes or revolutionaries, the exploits of the Kelly gang increasingly attract world attention." More at Troy Backhouse.
