These two toned ceramic incense holders are shaped into a simple lotus flower in a stunning midnight blue and Moroccan peach. Coated in a shiny glaze, these are easy to clean and even easier to bring with you from room to room, or when traveling. Use with both stick and cone incense.
The lotus symbol represents an array of concepts, depending on the school of thought. In Buddhism it is symbolic of purity of the body, speech and mind. Buddhists see this flower that floats above the muddy waters of attachment and desire to be symbolic of detachment. In Hinduism the lotus represents beauty, creation and awakening. These simple concepts stem from a complex history. In Egyptology, the lotus represents the sun. In Western culture the lotus has become a popular symbol of meditation and spiritual growth that may include many of these historical concepts.
