These are earthen kandils or lanterns that are used in villages (which still have no electricity) to light up rooms, especially during festivals. I spotted this arrangement in one of the high end restaurants, 'Soul Punjab' in GK-II. It is ironic that something that the poor are forced to resort to in absence of the basic necessity of electricity, affluent use to decorate a high-end grub joint.
It is beautiful, I will give it that.
