Urlis are one of the most commonly used ornamentation for decorating your house or office open areas; their simplicity, soberness and exquisite structure is what that attracts the viewer. Urli is one of the best traditions we have carried forward from our ancestors, as earlier they were used as a traditional cookware in South India or in naturopathy centres and spas to prepare herbal potions to treat various ailments.
The one shown here is an antique beauty in a glossy golden colored brass in a usual broadened matka shape defined by a chiselled thin line at the circumference and the brim decorated with ghunghroos fitted in it along with a ring. This urli has a satisfactory 12-inch depth, which makes it perfect to be used for elegant decorations; filling an urli bowl with water and floating flower petals in it along with floating diyas is the best decoration way of urli in this modern era.
The most distinctive and an add-on feature to this sculpture is the long stand on which the urli is placed. The thick platform is carved in floral latticework and the edges are decorated with similar kind of dangling ghunghroos in a circular motion; the long and slender stick is carved in random yet defined cuts all over and rests on a small circular base. Any person can’t resist himself from buying it, after having a single visual to this enticing statue and its alluring carvings.
