Vintage brass puja or prayer spoon depicting Lord Krishna with twin peacocks at the bottom is handcrafted in brass in a green and gold patina finish by skilled artisans from Aligarh, India.
The great exponent of the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna is one of the most powerful incarnations of Vishnu, the Godhead of the Hindu Trinity of deities. Of all the Vishnu Avatars, he is the most popular, and perhaps of all Hindu gods the one closest to the heart of the masses.
Such spoons are normally used by hindus priests or women of the house during daily prayers at home or on special occasions like weddings by priests for sprinkling or drinking of Gangajal, the holy Ganges water to wash away all the sins and for blessings of Indian deities and gods.
You can also use this as an art deco item.
