Small cute lotus tealight holders. Seven individual colours, each representing the colour of each chakra.
Made from Capiz Shell.
Capiz shells are actually the outer shells of a marine mollusc; its scientific name is placuna placenta, more commonly known as “windowpane oyster”. Philippine Capiz shells are so named because they were originally harvested from the shallow coastal waters near the town of Capiz, on the island of Panay. Once cleaned, the shells are naturally translucent and, when painted, allow for a glorious interplay between light and colour.
The Lotus symbolises darkness into light, ignorance into knowledge. The Lotus symbolises also the 7 energy centres in the human body, the chakras.
Price is for set of seven.
(May arrive with gold or silver trim, depending on what’s in stock at time of order)
