These beautiful vintage round oil lamps or Diyas are handcrafted from excellent quality brass by skilled artisans using the the lost wax process practised by their forefathers centuries ago known as Dokhra Metal Art in the Southern Indian state of Odisha.
Delicate engravings on top of each lamp done by hand along with a curved handle to hold the lamp makes each of them a work of art . The oil lamp / diya is used to store oil that serves as a fuel to the wick. Each lamp has a small nozzle which can be unscrewed for inserting the wick.
In Hindu culture, lighting of a lamp denotes dispelling away of the darkness. The lamp, in most Indian languages is called a “Jyoti” or Deepak or Diya and are lit during most celebrations, daily prayers and auspicious occasions. When we pray to the Gods and Goddesses by lighting a lamp, the belief is that we will be richly rewarded with tremendous prosperity.
