The Water Bowl Show

Candles in a turpi

A turpi is a water bowl, and it is a common practice in India to add some floating candles and/or flowers to it as a calming decorative item at home. Here, there are some flower shaped floating candles, each burning with different intensities, putting together an interesting collection of shadows and light.
