Antique Hindu Bronze

genuine antique Pavai Vilakku is a traditional tribal bronze Deepalakshmi oil
lamp from Tamil Nadu in Southern India. It is a fair sized temple shrine piece.
Its coarse surface suggested that the statue was sand cast, and the darkened head
of the goddess is undoubtedly from years of burning ghee in Puja, which effectively
enhanced and deepened Her spiritual essence. With a beautiful natural patina,
and well preserved in very good condition. This rare bronze Deepalakshmi oil lamp
is a highly collectible item.
