Capiz Lotus Tea Light

Beautiful Capiz Lotus Tea Light handmade into a Lotus flower with Capiz shells. 

Dimensions: 3.5"W x 2"H

Designed by Om Gallery and exquisitely crafted by our artisan partners in the Philippines.

Lotus flowers are seen as symbols of enlightenment and spiritual awakening. Capiz shells are the outer shell of a marine mollusk more commonly known as the "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 color.
