Beautiful Sekunda oil lamp with figure of Ganesh on the front and the Naga King on the top. Great patina and good condition for its age. // Sukunda lamps are indigenous to the Newar people of the Kathmandu Valley. They are used for a wide range of religious and social purposes. The vase can be used to store the oil. Sukunda play an important role in most Newar rituals, rituals for birth, wedding and death. The larger pieces are reserved for wedding ceremonies.
