Corvette C5 Neon Sculptures feature multi-colored, hand blown neon tubing. The neon sculpture plugs into a black base, which fully houses all the electronics. The base has an on and off switch, and can be adapted to sit on a shelf or hang on a wall. Neon sculptures have a warm mesmerizing glow, and are powered by solid state transformers, which operate silently and more efficiently than incandescent bulbs. All you do is plug it in ac no special wiring required.
