Terracotta and concrete holy basil planters occupy prime space in front / inner courtyards of many Hindu houses in rural India. This product takes the urban consumer in mind who wants to stay connected to this ritual of worship of plants as a metaphor of God irrespective of religion, yet doesn’t have as much time or space to dedicate to maintaining a garden.
The form is inspired by Columns from Ajanta and Ellora caves. Coves are set in for tealights.
The choice of copper for the main planter is said to impart positive ions in the soil which are enriching for growth.
