Hoysala Dancing Peacock Lamp
A tall stately lamp to grace a special corner of your home. Sculpted from bronze, the lamp that you see on this page is a fine example of the Hoysala style. It is an architectural and iconographical aesthetic developed in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. Under the patronage of the Hoysala rulers, it flourished to dot the map of present-day Karnataka with superb structures, of which this lamp is a contemporary reproduction.A long, slender stem with a complex silhouette. From lotus petals to simple dot-and-curve engravings, it is a column of layered, concentric circular structures. A tray of continuous lamps with six wicks extending in six different directions, designed to be filled with ghee or scented pooja oil and lit. A circular series of elongated lotus petals immediately beneath the lamp-tray. A pair of tiny parakeets perched against the body of the lamp. Further down the stem are two sprigs of a thickly curving vine which serve as handles with which to move about the structure. Finally, at the zenith of the composition is a peacock sculpture. Its luxuriant plumage is raised in the air, the superb arch of its neck and back adding to the glamour of the work of art. Zoom in on the same to appreciate the keenness of detail infused into just this aspect of the sculpture.The lamp is poised upon a circular pedestal. It comprises a flat disc, latticeworked lotus petals, and a circular panel of lotus petal engravings. The legs are made to resemble delicate vine overgrowths.
