"Create Beautiful Ambience" - The name Ardhan is of Hindu origin. It refers to the short name of Ardhanarishvara, the composite androgynous form of the Hindu deities Shiva and Parvati. This Hindu deity takes the form of half-male and half-female. The right half is that of Shiva and the left half expounds Parvati. This may be considered similar to the yin and yang concept.
This wooden tealight holder is perfect for lighting up your dining table or adding an ethnic, decorative touch to your living room. It is suitable to hold two standard-sized tealight candles (38 mm diameter).

About Indian Woodcraft & Artisans
Woodcraft in India is dated back to the ancient times of Maharajas. Initially, the art was limited to carving sculptures and windows of temples and palaces. Over many generations and under the influence of its region's culture and locally available wood the art form has evolved and now extends to articles like furniture, decorative pieces, storage boxes, table lamps, toys and puppets.
India has an abundance of native wood that lends well to the carving and inlay work. Some of the examples are Ebony, Rosewood, Sandalwood, Sheesham, and Sal.
The diversity of each region's style and carving technique reflects in the motifs, and patterns on each carved article. The geometrical and floral patterns are the most popular.
In many regions, woodcraft production is vital for community livelihoods. By participating with Fair Trade organisations, we contribute to alleviating poverty and promoting sustainability through ethical practices. These organisations aim to educate and empower disadvantaged sections of the Indian community by providing them with job opportunities, gender equality, fair wage, safe and healthy working environment while preserving the local culture & traditional skills.
