    1. To put off means to delay.
    How the lamp could delay I have no idea.
    Don't put it off. Don't leave it for tomorrow or later on.

    2. A deer statue made of gold.

    Also could be an expression for a rich man which money could be used for taking some advances in life.

    Re: Check the sentences

    A lamp would "shut off" suddenly. Or "turn off."

    If you were walking down a path, you would not be using a "lamp," but a "flashlight" (AmE) or "torch" (BrE).
