Sukunda Ritual Oil Lamps are used by the Newar tribe in the Kathmandu Valley.

These oil lamps were used in ancient Nepalese traditional religious ceremonies and also used for family rituals. Ganesh, worshipped as the remover of obstacles, is invoked at auspicious occasions such as weddings.

Ganesh is shown seated beneath an ornately carved, scrolling foliate canopy. Two ritual bells hang on either side, in accordance with the Hindu custom of ringing a bell before and after worship.
