Superfine Peacock Lamp With Elephant Heads At The Base

Superfine Peacock Lamp With Elephant Heads At The Base

While the Sarasvati Valley Civilisation birthed a great sculptural tradition that stands its ground to this day, a scarcely appreciated aspect of Indian sculptural tradition lies in the beautiful copper pieces that date to shortly after the collapse of the Civilisation. They belong to the Buddhist era, having remained within the shadows of the more gorgeous bronze and wood sculptures that continue to be made to this day.

Which explains the effort it takes to discover, commission, and preserve a good work in the medium. The one you see on this page is a tall, slender lamp that curves out at multiple points along the stem and seemingly rests on the back of three elephants. It is at once traditional - from the wick, to the motifs that make up the stem - and unconventional (the solid silver finish, the medium in question).

The most unusual aspect of this lamp is the trio of elephants, whose heads are protruding out from the base. There onwards, all the way through the stem to the tray of wicks on the top, gorgeous lattice-work punctuates the intricately embossed surface. In keeping with the traditions of Indian lamp-making, a peacock with its plumage bared sits at the very top, crowning the work with its life and beauty.
