I love these kind of items.  This is an old diya lamp (not clay but brass) that has all sorts of Hindu religious icons . . peacocks, elephants, various birds.  Most times those made of brass – rather than clay – are used in temples in Hindu, Sikh Jain and Zoroastrian religious festivals.

 

This would be a great gift for friends or yourself.  This diya lamp is very difficult to find and is considered rare in this form.  Stand is not included.
