The lamp that you see on this page is a particularly ornate number, one that deviates slightly from the traditional long-stemmed Indian lamp. A tray of lamps, containing a total of five mouths for the wicks, is placed directly above the stand. The stand is a shallow, upturned structure with four legs, each of which is engraved with considerable detail despite the scale. Around the central structure that stems from the midst of the tray is a circular series of five peacocks seated on a lotus bloom each.
On each of their heads are the five legs of a minimalistic pedestal. Upon that pedestal is a gigantic peacock, sculpted in the glamour of a superbly detailed plumage. Zoom in on its breast and its tail to take in the beauty of the workmanship. A curvaceous sprig of vine cascades from betwixt its beak. Note the discrete lamps that emerge from each of the slender legs of the pedestal above the heads of the miniscule peacocks.
