Vilakku in Malayalam stands for Lamp. The Nilavilakku is integral to several rituals and ceremonies in Hindu families in Kerala. As the sun rises, young girls and boys of the family bring the lighted lamps to the verandah of the house. Then they are joined by the elders of the family, especially the grandparents, chanting hymns. In the evening the ritual is repeated alongside evening prayers. It can be placed as a piece of craftsmanship that connects to the Indian tradition of lighting lamps for all auspicious occasions.

This is hand made by specialists in the time honored Kerala tradition and can take up to 30 days to complete. The cast is done in clay and burned in a furnace which heats up to 1000 Degrees Celsius. It can only be custom-made, i.e. hand crafted to a specific size on order.
