Photographer's Note

This earthen lamp is lit as a ritual as well as a decoration on Deepawali in India. The lamp has small carvings of Goddess Laxmi and Lord Ganesha......the dieties being worshipped on this festival.
The title 'Tamso Ma Jyotirgamaya' means ....Hey Goddess take me out from the darkness and enlighten me.
