STORY
The graceful ceramic hands are shaped in "mudra" gestures, an aspect of Eastern classical dance. In the "Jnana mudra," the thumb touches the forefinger, with the palm up. This gesture symbolizes wisdom. In the "Varada mudra" the open hand is facing upwards. This gesture symbolizes hope.

The text inside the box reads: Handcrafted from terra cotta, these graceful tea light holders are created in the form of "mudra" hand gestures of classical dance throughout the Indian subcontinent. In the "Jnana mudra" the thumb touches the forefinger, with the palm up. This gesture symbolizes wisdom. In the "Varada mudra" the open hand is facing upwards. This gesture symbolizes hope. Symbolically, these two hands holding tea lights convey the following invitation: "May wisdom guide you and hope sustain you."
