It is a tall, thick-set number with a long stem. Each section of the same features dense latticework that results in the shape of stylised vines and luxuriant leaf projections. The bottommost section is a shallow-bottomed stand that is carved with embossed lotus petals. Miniscule lotus petals are to be found at the multiple junctures along the stem of this lamp. Finally, at the crest of the lamp is a handsome peacock, its plumage flaring into the winds. Despite the scale, it has been sculpted with a remarkable degree of symmetry and attention to detail.
Fashioned from copper, this lamp is a striking silver monotone. In the Indian sculptural tradition, copper is a rare medium, and requires a considerable level of skill and experience to work with. The sheer proportion of latticework in this lamp makes it a work of art that is at once functional and a collectible.
