Placing this urli in your home- or office-temple is akin to bringing to your space an essential aspect of the South Indian life. Urlis have traditionally been a South Indian thing. Placed at the entrances of homes, temples, and commercial establishments, it is supposed to be filled with freshwater, on which freshly plucked morning blooms are floated. This not only makes for a visual arrangement of striking beauty, but also fills the air with an inimitable scent. So simple, yet so powerful, the urli exudes something of superb calm and divinity. The one you see on this page is a highly decorative variant of this age-old element of home decor, a work of art that would uplift the divinity quotient of your space.
It is crafted from bronze, an exquisite medium perfected in the artisan-dominated recesses of Southern India. While bronze-sculpting flourished under the patronage of Chola rulers centuries ago, it is Bangalore that is today the home of contemporary works in bronze. This urli has been handpicked from the best that local studios have to offer. From the legs of the urli and the frontal edge of the curve of the bowl carved with peacocks and kirtimukha, to the ornate temple-esque structure on top, the entirety of the work bears a level of detail and precision that are to be found nowhere else in the world. Lighting the panchadia (set of five lamps) that drops from the 'ceiling' of the urli would add a world of glamour to the arrangement.
