[The background flowers of this screen are called 'shefali' or 'shiuli' in Bengali language. They are tiny (of almost the same size as of the ones in the pictures on the screen) white flowers that bloom in rather short trees during the winter season in West Bengal and other parts of India. They are as beautiful as they look in the picture of the background screen and very fragrant. These flowers are very significant in that they are considered very sacred and used in the worship of Gods and Goddesses during the winter season.]
