Elegance and antiquity is gracefully reflected in this one of a kind inverted lotus leaf sculpture. This sculpture, which can also be used as a center piece accent, is casted out of "Peetal" (meaning brass in hindi). Skilled artisans have captured the minutest of details of the lotus leaf by using the ancient technique of sand casting. Using a mixture of sand and molasses a mould is created of the real lotus leaf. After this, molten metal peetal (meaning brass in hindi) is poured into a lotus leaf mould. Once cooled, the artisan then files the the metal leaf sculpture to take away any impurities of the casting process. The individual components are then forged and welded together. The product is then hand polished using a using a buffering process. Each vein of the leaf is highlighted with a gold finish.
Since every product is scrupulously hand crafted, no two pieces are identical. Each piece has its unique identity. Feel free to take a closer look at the details of the natural vein patterns of the lotus leaf by scrolling over the photo.
