The urli is a characteristic feature of traditional Indian homes, the likes of which are hardly to be found in cultures beyond Southeast Asia. It is a simple shallow-bottomed vessel with a wide rim. Each morning it is filled with fresh water, with the express purpose of floating freshly plucked flowers. This leads to sweet-smelling surroundings, and creates a fragrance that children grow up to associate with a sense of home. This handpicked urli is a fine example of the apparatus.
It is an ornate number, which befits large spaces such as the drawing room where it would be a great conversation-starter for your guests. It bears a miniscule murti of the Devi Lakshmi, the deity that presides over resources and well-being that comes from the judicious use of the same. This makes for a super-auspicious work of art to decorate your home with. Note the gorgeous frontal motif, which in itself is a fine independent work of fine sculptural art.
Padmasana Devi Lakshmi sits amidst an aureole made of curvaceous golden vine. Similar vines grace almost the entire rim of the urli, which you are welcome to zoom in on to truly appreciate the complex handiwork. The circular aureole of Devi Lakshmi is flanked by a pair of elephants with their trunks raised to herald Her, adding to the statement of auspiciousness of the sculpture.
