Bronze Oil Lamp with Peacocks and Stone Inlay work
Light symbolizes knowledge. Knowledge is the everlasting wealth that is capable of removing ignorance just as the light removes darkness. An oil lamp is lit to bow down to knowledge as the greatest of all forms. The oil or ghee in the lamp symbolizes our vasanaas and the cotton wick, our ego. When lit by spiritual knowledge, the vasanas get slowly exhausted and the ego too perishes. The flame of a lamp always burns upwards and similarly one should acquire such knowledge as to take us towards higher ideals. Sun™s energy is released by burning oil in a lamp. Light from Lamp depicts the â€œSunâ€ in our home which brightens our intellect like light in the dark. It dissipates ignorance, fear, depression, and all other negative energy and brings light of positive energy.
Birds that look like peacock/Swan carved on oil lamp are said to be mystical white colour birds that live in heaven. They are known for the purity. They are said to be so pure that if you keep milk mixed with water, they can separate water from milk and drink only pure milk.
