Leuchterweibchen and Lüsterweibchen:
  Anthropomorphic Chandeliers of the 15th-17th Centuries
The Limewood Sculptors of Renaissance Germany

BlackForestBear defines these as fixtures which “incorporated the torso of a bare-breasted maiden, hunter or monk who appeared to hover above the room's occupants on antler wings. Early examples of these chandeliers were illustrated in a manuscript by Willem Vrelant in the university library at Erlanger and in engravings by Lucas Cranach, circa 1540.”

While most of them are female, there are a few male examples (Leuchtermännchen). More information can be found on German Wikipedia.
