This brilliantly conceived brass-statue, the light being the theme and the worlds of humans and animals emerging from, represents a form of Saraswati, the bestower of divine light in the form of knowledge, and thus the destroyer of darkness. Appropriate to an image in which aestheticism and auspiciousness combine, the statue has been framed within a fire-arch with two peacock forms comprising its arms, known in the tradition as Mayura-Prabhavali.

The fire-arch, the most artistic frame for any image, rises from two diagonally opposite points on the principal lamp’s periphery. These two points have been identified with two hooks that on one hand provide grips for holding the statue, and on the other, afford a broadened base for structuring the fire-arch. Two mythicized lion-figures, stationed over these hooks, hold on their backs the lower ends of the fire-arch terminating on the top into two peacocks holding in their beaks the twigs-type cast dragon forms. On the top an auspicious Kirtimukha motif spans the gap between the two peacock figures. There release from the wide open mouth of the Kirtimukha two exceptionally beautiful gussets. This lamp, which houses the statue of Goddess Saraswati, has been raised over a two-tiered base, each consisting of a circular plate, one installed over the other. Each plate has ten smaller lamps around its outer periphery. The base-plate has a wider rim, though the number and the size of the lamps attached to both is alike.
