The urli is a quintessentially Indian piece of home decor. Its function is simple, but the benefits it proffers to Indian households fills members with the sense of home. The urli is usually a large, shallow-bottomed vessel. It is filled to the neck with freshwater, atop which are then strewn the petals of newly bloomed and plucked flowers. This arrangement is more than the aesthetics that meet the eye - it fills the surroundings with a scent so earthy and so beautiful, we continue to associate it with our homes and the pooja-ghar (altars) even when we are far apart.
This resplendent brass urli from the Exotic India collection would uplift the Indian ethos of your space. It is cast into the form of a peacock, India's sacred bird, whose body constitutes the vessel for the water and the flowers. In fact, the peacock is dancing - its richly inlaid plumage is up for display, its wings turned outwards and its neck protruding forward. The pastels make for a charming combination with the gold of the brass. Note the lifelike feet of the peacock that supports the urli, its tastefully inlaid crown, and skilfully embedded edge of the vessel. Place this at a strategic part of your home, and have your visitors fall over each other to admire it.
