Angeethi is a portable hearth used for warmth in a space. This angeethi, kept inside a room, was made by the daughter-in-law of the family using an admixture of mud and husk. Relief patterns were made on the surface using fingertips. An inbuilt structure, similar to a pot ring was made at the bottom to hold the hearth upright.
