Pooja lamps are a remarkable origin from South India and is used a source of illuminator of all forms of knowledge being greater than wealth. A lamp is lit before starting with any kind of auspicious event as the light that emerges out from it is the light of divinity, wisdom, intellect and a path to the lord himself. The one shown on this page is sculpted out of a superfine brass material in typical South Indian style carvings. Its light golden color, smooth and glossy texture enhances the intricacies of the beautiful carvings. You can hang this lamp on the roof using the double locked solid chain at the top and diya will be lighted in deep bowl-like structure at the bottom.
The little stem in the centre that connects diya with peacock, is moulded in an absolute beauty with sharp yet blunt twists and turns highlighted by deep chisels in an elegant decoration. Peacocks are a common depiction on Hindu artefacts, as this bird represents joy and happiness which also brings prosperity and good luck. This bird here, is whittled in extensive patterns of varied types- with the wavy layered front, thick checks on the feathers and small horizontal lines coil among to beautify the tail. This roof hanging lamp will not only charm the place with its beauty but also abolish darkness with its pure light.
