Gajalakshmi  Brass Lamp Large Size Diya Vilakku 8inches

Gajalakshmi Villakku is a traditional oil lamp widely used in India. 

History: Gajalakshmi villakku, a traditional south India lamp made out of brass. This diya portrays goddess lakshmi the sitting on a full bloomed lotus. The villaku has intricately carved elephants  at the sides of the goddess, arches and louts flowers. Handmade by skilled artisans. All auspicious functions commence with the lighting of the brass diya or villaku. The meaning is that the ignorance of darkness is removed when the light which symbolizes knowledge is lit. Hence we all bow down to knowledge as the greatest form of wealth.  Diyas are mainly used as oil lamps. The wreck is made from cotton and the oil used is mostly vegetable oil. 

How to Maintain: Use brass cleaning solutions to clean them once in a month. Tamarind can also be used to bring polish.
