Beneath the pedestal on which He characteristically balances His feet, four parrots are perched on to the pole of the lamp. Each of the plumages has been carved in remarkable detail and with wondrous symmetry. From the subtle curvature of the tails, to the angle and features of their gentle heads, the uniformity is beyond artistic reproach. Such is the lifelike stance of the birds that they are enraptured by the divine music of His flute and cannot bring themselves to fly off from the lamp. From beneath the parrots' tails the body of the lamp descends into a pattern of ringlets, each diametrically larger than the last, till an angular-edged ringlet. The miniscule, foliage-like curves of the stand is in likeness with the aureole on top, lending to the composition a soothing wholeness.
