An intricately carved Holder or tealight holder, made up of Soapstone! See the magic come alive in the dark when you place a tealight inside the stone sculpture. The intricately carved patterns get imposed on the surface, on which you keep the sculpture. The candle/tealight holder has been handmade in traditional Indian jali work or openwork carving (intricate latticework having a pattern of openings), hand-carved by artisans in Agra, the city of the Taj Mahal, also famous for stone carving and inlay-work handicrafts. These arts have been practiced and handed down within artisan families since ancient Mughal times. The beauty of the detailed, intricate carving work is the reason for its immense popularity.
