Lightening a lamp means spreading light over darkness, symbolic of unfurling knowledge over ignorance. The oil represents the negativities and the wick is the ego that is burnt by the lit knowledge.
This traditional South Indian lamp is very uniquely and beautifully designed having a multilayer conical base with three braches coming out of it in a wavy pattern. Each branch has a diya shaped container at the top with three wicks individually placed in it.
It is a beautiful home décor lamp that can be used in worship places or kept as enrichment. Golden color is giving it a marvelous look; having a smooth and shiny surface; bending and molding is perfectly done.
