India's handicrafts are almost inexhaustible with an infinite variety. Rajasthan has, for several centuries excelled in marble related craft as well as in jewelry. Painting and seemingly inlay work with stones on marble tiles is the result of years of almost unconscious experiment and evolution.

This beautiful damsel with idealized features adorns a pink odhini, bright colors being the favorite with desert folk. Her oval face has almond shaped eyes with arched eyebrows, straight nose and full lips. A curl escapes to fall on her cheek. A bright yellow choli serves as a contrast to the pink odhini. The highlight of the painting is neither the marble tile of high quality nor the exquisitely painted lady but the famous Rajasthani jewelry that she wears. She wears traditional jewelry, the design of which has remained unaltered through the ages. On the forehead, she wears 'rakhadi,' a flat hair ornament, the gem set covering the entire length of the forehead. In the middle is a beautifully ornamented circular piece with drop pearls. In the ears, she wears 'phul jhumka,' bell shaped earrings which are a part of typical folk jewelry. Her nose is pierced with a wire containing a couple of pearls. She also wears a rich, gem set, pearl ornamented neck jewelry. Strings of pearls follow the heavy neck piece.

The jewelry is painted in gold with various colored stones minutely set according to the design. The natural skin color, bright colors of the clothes, and the jewelry worked in relief combine to make this painting a masterpiece.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
