Large Size Mayura Lamp

Large Size Mayura Lamp

This lamp from the Exotic India collection bears all the characteristics of the typical South Indian lamp. The brass has been sculpted into a long, slender pole and given a finishing sheen that would put gold and silver to shame. The delicate, intricately embossed curves are sure to have a lot of admiring gazes linger on them, such is the beauty of South Indian workmanship. The beauty of this gracious lamp culminates in the exotic bird figurine on the crown, a peacock with a shapely body and a resplendent plumage. This valakku, as these lamps are called in the vernacular, is a fine example of a piece of utility that doubles as a work of art.

The traditional lamp is indeed a piece of utility in the Indian household. No matter the progress of electricity in our cities and villages, it is considered auspicious to light a lamp somewhere in the house in time for dusk. A ceremony that has emerged out of olden days' habit, lamp-lighting culture has given birth to a whole new genre of art in the subcontinent. Despite its being only a symbolic gesture in this day, its beauty lies in the spiritual meaning it holds and the aesthetics of the same. The sacredness of the peacock to the Indian people, the undulating shapeliness of the valakku, and the dominant gold over silver are all the ingredients you need to add a touch of the Indian to your home.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
