This brass incense holder can be used for the burning of incense cones and resin, or to burn charcoal discs in. It comes as two parts, the detachable lid is a funnel shape with holes in the shape of stars and sits on the base. The smoke escapes through the small holes at the top - using the lid means the smoke can go gently and not all at once. You can put a small amount of sand, ash or a dry grain such as rice at the bottom of the burner to help improve the air flow, especially with a cone. This can also help it to burn and protect the burner from the heat.
It stands on 3 brass legs which keeps the base slightly of the surface, but it would still be good to use something heat resistant underneath.
Size of Burner Total height 9cm, diameter of base 5.2cm, central cup approx 4cm.
Country of Origin: India
Safety Note: Before use, place on a heat resistant surface as the bottom will become very hot if used for charcoal.

More About the Symbol of a Star
When many of us in the west think of the star as a symbol the first one that comes to mind is the star that announced to the wise men the birth of Jesus Christ. As such we connect the star with hope and prophecy and we begin its association through countless civilisations with mysticism, cosmic forces and universal mystery. The Mayans and Egyptians are known to have mirrored star constellations in the arrangement of their pyramids and some Native American tribes see the stars as the souls of their ancestors watching over them.
The star is a symbol of something much greater than ourselves because it has a connection with the very foundation of life, with the very beginnings of the universe, and how creation actually started. The mystery lies in how light came from darkness. In many traditions there was a blackness, a void, and from this void creation sprang. Stars and suns are widely seen to be part of this moment. The star signals a belief in the ability of something to come from nothing - a belief in miracles. A star is like saying 'yes' to life. It is like a positive affirmation, saying that you are always open to the unexpected.
