Diwali Diya

 

Typically the diya's seen at Diwali are clay, but this one is bronze (?). Ghee or oil is used as the fuel and cotton wool as the wick.

The ones that are outside the house, especially the ones that can nipped are clay. There are usually some inside the house that are metal. This are usually used in ceremonies, etc.
This are usually too valuable to be displayed outside.
