Sanjhi Luminaries: low level floor lamp

Designer: Ankur Khare

Don’t you think floating flowers and diyas have come alive in a brand new avatar! This low level floor lamp by artist-designer Ankur Khare is brilliant on many counts. It incorporates traditional look, international style and traditional craft called Sanjhi craft.

The Sanjhi craft of Mathura is a ritualistic craft used in the worship of Lord Krishna. This craft involves cutting paper stencils to make Rangoli patterns on walls and floors and themes and motifs depicting the life of Lord Krishna.

So what better way to celebrate Diwali than with a design which encompasses Rangoli, diyas/lights and flowers and an ancient craft!

Happy Diwali!
