The Furtive Princess

The Furtive Princess

She has scarcely attained to womanhood. She runs around on the grounds of the palace of her father the King, mischievously keeping her handmaidens on tenterhooks in their never-ending search for her. She is bursting forth with life and fecundity, the beauty of her fulsome youth unbeknownst to her yet. In this oil painting, she is captured in a moment of stillness.

Something has caught the little princess by surprise. In one of the sombre corners of her home, she stands stock still and overhears her father discuss possible liaisons through her marriage. In her shyness, she draws her sheer dupatta over her bosom clad in a brick-coloured choli. Note the dilemma in her body language - the stance of her torso is as if to rush on in her playfulness, but she turns back a little, her head leaning in the direction of her father’s voice as he decides her future.

The fullness of her youth is set off by the ample gold and jewels on her person. A faint blush rises from the high of her cheeks to the roots of her black curls. Her heaving breasts are almost bursting through the silk of her choli. Her gaze is resting on a nearby lamp - an eerie glisten characterises those large, kohl-rimmed eyes.

Buff-Yellow Brocaded Lehenga with Floral Embroidered Choli and Crystal Studded Dupatta

Buff-Yellow Brocaded Lehenga with Floral Embroidered Choli and Crystal Studded Dupatta

There is no such thing as the perfect bridal lehenga. Each lehenga has its own personality, and whilst shopping for her trousseau every bride should focus on the key aspects that reflect hers. The first of those aspects is colour - the one you see on this page is a gracious gold superimposed with high-density brocade. This single hue dominates the colour palette of this ensemble, which is preferred by brides who are tired of the conventional reds, pinks, and oranges.


Then there is silhouette. This one cuts a regal one, given the volume of its flowing skirt and the understated fit of the matching gold choli. The choli is embroidered with a world of flower-shaped booties - note the luxuriant panel across the neckline and sleeves - that add to the bridal appeal of this number. Finally, the most statement-making aspect of this lehenga is the peach-coloured dupatta. Its silken texture adds to the silhouette. With matching brocade sewn on to the edges and crystals woven into the fabric, it is just the image of bridal glamour.

Leonine Temple Guards

Leonine Temple Guards

Nothing like a pair of stylised lions to add to your home decor. Unusual as they are, these sculptures depict the form of the leonine guard as could be found in ancient temples in the farther Northern reaches of the subcontinent. Their function is to greet visitors as they flank the entrance to the altar of a deity; alternatively, they could be positioned on either side of the deity within.

These lions are a fine example of devotional Indian handiwork. Fashioned from brass, their bodies are inlaid with richly coloured bits of resin indicative of regal adornment. Their faces are carved most delicately, with the kind of precision and attention to detail possible only for the finest of sculptors. A composure of wrath - mouths open, tongues lashing out - characterises the faces of the lions.

It is the wrathful expression that gives away the style of temple architecture these lions belong to. In addition to the same, there are the tiny protrusions on the tops of their heads, the impressions of wings on their brows and shoulders, and the serrations on their superbly carved ears. Zoom in on the realistic mane spreading in thick curls over their leonine shoulders. Finally, the lifelike flourish of their tails completes the sculpture.

Crossing the River

Crossing the River

Navrang has shown a lovely plethora of tints to depict the scene of the battle of Thanesar which is taken from the Akbarnama. It is a historic Persian miniature that is festooned with real gold, increasing its worth and value. This painting encapsulates many men and many war animals however it highlights one young geezer who seems to be the commander of the battalions as they cross the river. He wears a beige jama and a green tassel like waist band that tightens around his body. This porcelain complexioned man with deep lines etched over his face wears a grey feathered turban as he carries a long spear in his hand and rides a decorated elephant who is emblazoned with gorgeous ornamented balls around its neck and a saddle cloth that hangs over its back. It is also enhanced with a pink tinted feather that falls over its head band.

The high blue river tides picture many soldiers who are either swimming, are in the cavalry or are mounted on elephants. All the geezers wear vibrant jamas and turbans as they take control of their exotically imprinted and designed war animals, holding their swords and spears as they look at their commander for help. They carry flags, shields and floral sheathed armaments as they struggle against the tides. The background shows amazingly contrasted green and beige fort like buildings and minaret that protrude from them as they peak from the lush green trees which stand on the grassy green riverbed.

To add further charm to this awestriking piece the artist encloses it in a golden and peach rectangular floral frame which is blessed with jade blue pistils and eye-catching motifs. This painting is the perfect match for those who love ancient Mughal history as it not only enhances their old cultural knowledge but turns out to be a great and precious ornament for their house hence even decorating up their soul.

Chiffon is the fabric of choice of the modern Indian woman. Its inimitable drape and paper-soft texture make it a staple feature of pop films and music videos. The chiffon saree that you see on this page is a transparent solid-coloured number. The colour is a delicate flush of gold mixed with peach, a great one for the bride’s sister or the bride herself on the occasion of those irreplaceably personal post-wedding dates.

The endpiece is the most glamorous aspect of this saree. It is densely embroidered in quintessential Lucknavi style with miniscule flowers in pale green and yellow, punctuated by extensive snatches of vine here and there. Matching embroidery is to be found along the thin border and more of those flowers across the field of the saree. This chiffon number is best teamed with the sleekest of your mother’s hand-me-downs.

Lord Buddha in Bhumisparsha Mudra (Inlay Statue)

Lord Buddha in Bhumisparsha Mudra (Inlay Statue)

It is believed that Prince Siddhartha at the young age of 29, witnessed four sights of people’s sufferings. Those experiences were vital enough and compelled him to leave comfortable royal life behind and embrace the spiritual path, leading to the enlightenment of the soul.

This brass statue of Lord Buddha, depicted as costumed in his divine dual coloured robe in deep blue and maroon. The robe is luxuriously studded and inlayed in splendid floral patterns with the colourful artificial gemstones and ornamental stones in turquoise, sapphire & ruby red; the ethnic circular boarded chains all over are luring the blunt colours. The back of Buddha is fully draped with this lavish robe. He touches the earth with his right hand and the left-hand holds the begging bowl symbolizing him of the highest order. This action of touching the earth or calling the earth is Buddha’s Bhumisparsha Mudra that represents the moment when Buddha became enlightened underneath the Bodhi tree and by doing this he claims the earth ( Dhartimata ) as the witness of this enlightenment.

The awakened Buddha here sits on a royal carved pedestal in a charming lotus posture with the eyes closed in essence of meditation; his long earlobes ready to hear the sufferings of the world & to cure and the three Shiva-divine lines on the neck enhances his soulful voice and the naturally carved coiled hair settle on the head forming a conical top represent his iconic attributes in a wonderous manner. The most distinctive feature is the mesmerized carving on the robe done with high level of endurance.

Hindu Sadhus

Hindu Sadhus

Sadhu is a religious ascetic, mendicant or any holy person in Hinduism and Jainism who has renounced the worldly life. It literally means one who practices a ″sadhana″ or keenly follows a path of spiritual discipline. In this painting, Navneet Parikh has worked his magic again as he paints the canvas in a warm tone depicting a desert like ground that has a fire burning in the front as the smoke and the flames combine to give it a yellow and orange hue. The background shows a lush green acacia tree which contrasts the baked stone monastery in the distance which sets up over the hill on the top right of the art. The sky is filled with smoke and clouds and is tinged a dusty yellow to give a picturesque scene with the amazing blend of colors that happens with the wide chromatic plethora.

This painting is enclosed in a double layered border one of which is very thin and is imprinted with golden floral designs as it is contrasted with a bright orange background. The outer border is also embossed with with plant designs, but it is stamped with 6 young men and 1 old man, all of them wear jamas and holding books whilst they sit at a distance from each other. The painting itself shows five sadhus. One of them sleeps in the back with his arms over his head, wearing a yellow dhoti as he is accompanied by a ginger haired man who faces his porcelain white back in the direction of the spectators as his scarlet red silk lungi slips down his hips. The other three men have long waist length beards ranging from black to grey as one of them recites religious beads with his orange dhoti going below his hips. The one on the left wears a rose gold toga which envelops him as he sits beside another Sadhu who appears to be their Chief, wearing a dhoti along with an angavastram and a bright orange shawl.

This painting is of great importance not only in the history of the religion but even the art as it encapsulates the intricate details and designs of typical paintings which are a sign of the high and fine quality artistry making it your must buy choice as an ornament.

Twilight-Blue Chudidar Kameez Suit with Floral Booties and Giant Paisley Patch

Twilight-Blue Chudidar Kameez Suit with Floral Booties and Giant Paisley Patch

Every Indian woman should have a traditional Indian suit or two in her wardrobe. The inky blue number that you see on this page is just the statement pick. The gorgeous shade of blue is superimposed with silver patches of intricate embroidery, comprising traditional motifs such as paisleys and well-endowed vines. They seemingly weight down the neckline, plunging down the bust all the way below the navel, and line the mid-leg neckline where it is infused with red latticework. More of that red is to be found along the neckline and the edges of the full, straight-fit sleeves. Note the embroidered patches along the translucent sleeves of the kameez.

Matching blue choodidar trousers complement the bootidar kameez. A willowy chiffon dupatta completes the outfit. It is a bitone element, the dominant blue of the dress teamed with a pale creamy yellow. Note the solid cream, red, and gold laces that line the edges of the dupatta. This suit would be a great fit for poojas and parties alike.
