South India is known for its distinctive metal work. It is also known for its elaborate ceremonial rituals where lamps play an important role. Some are multi-tiered floor stands, or hanging lamps in various sizes, oil lamps and changalavatta (commonly known as the Greek lamps).

This deep, brass lamp is simple but strong in form. It is especially made for rituals where the flame is to be kept alight for hours together or till the ceremony is over. It is deep and wide enough to hold a large quantity of oil and a long wick. It is shaped like a traditional oil lamp, simple but for the handle by which the priests or a devotee holds the lit lamp. The elephant head forms that handle, which is the only decorative part of the lamp. The elephant head is decorated with floral patterns and other ornamentation. It has winnow like large ears, the trunk is raised and the twin tusks jut out.

Elephants in India are symbols of good charm. Indra rides an elephant and the goddess of good luck, Lakshmi is often shown being bathed by elephants.
