Making a medieval lantern

One of the positive sides of the whole corona mess is that I finally have time to do all the side projects that have been waiting for years. This time I decided to do a medieval lantern which was used in Europe between 12th and 15th centuries. This type of lantern is very simple, with a hole in the top and a movable candle-holder in the middle, surrounded with a piece of thin parchment to diffuse the light and protect the flame from the wind.
