Orissa Art - Papyrus cutwork Ganesha


Dear Readers,

Today I am sharing one of the Indian Artworks. I can't remember the traditional Indian name of this craft. I purchased this art piece from Handicraft Exhibition in Pune, India in 2006.

The design is hand drawn on the papyrus with natural dye. Then the cut work is done. The first layer of papyrus is cutout delicately to create 2 dimensions. The design is then shaded and coloured with natural inks and dyes. The design is then divided in to even strips of papyrus and tied with thread. This makes it easy to fold the design for storage. 

Have you seen any variations of this art? Do let me know the name of this art ...

Traditional Wall Hanging - Unique Gift

Hello again,

One of my friends mother gifted me these unique wall hangings from India. This workmanship is speciality of Gujarat and Rajasthan states. 

I love the play of colours and intricate detailed bed work makes this artpiece very unique.

It can also be used as cushion covers. But as I don't have cushion to fit these sizes, I use it as wall decor.
