The seated figure on a lotus pedestal is poised within a shallow-bottomed vessel. Along its frontal rim is a set of five discrete lamps, designed to be filled with ghee and lit. On either side of the central figure is a pair of lamps each, the wicks of which are facing opposite directions. There are a total of nine lamps in this composition, a striking feature of them all being golden insides. Note how the rim of the vessel features tiny engravings and has overtones of gold also.
Such an ensemble would be an unusual addition to the home of any devotee. Sculpted from pure brass, the colour finish is a washed out, exquisitely textured grey. The strategic infusions of gold colour serve to bring out the shades and tints of this gorgeous colour. Against the light of all the lamps lit together, the colour textures of the finish would be brought out in their composite perfection.
