    Marble Elephant. Handcarved Soap Stone Sculpture. Size 15 x 20 x 10cm

    Indians have traditionally believed that faith can breathe can breathe life into a stone. Flawless craftsmanship makes these stone statues beautiful, so intricately carved you can't help picking them up and wondering how it's done. And it's all hand-made, simply by passing down the skill over generations. The craft started way back in the 12th century under the direct patronage of the Mughal emperors, who brought skilled workers from the Middle East. The gradual decline of the Mughal empire meant an equal decline of crafts. Some turned to other trades, some to Ivory carving, temple carving etc. Stone carving was quickly dying. But this industry is seeing a slow revival, thanks to an interest in the International market. Because the raw material is affordable, these statues are within reach of normal people. The industry started developing from stone carvings for temples and mosques to utility items like candle stands, incense stick holders, jewelry boxes, etc. Soapstone is a 'soft' rock.  Fingernails and jewelry can scratch it. If it is dropped, there is a possibility that will break. Like any other valuable art, it should be handled with care.

    Krishna on Serpent. Cast Metal. Size: 20 x 10 x 10cm

    Wax cast, liquid metal poured into cast and set. This tribal art is from the Bastar area of Chattisgarh, and is made using the lost wax process called Cire Perdue in the West. This work is called Gadwakam in the local language. It is practised by tribals. Gadwakam is a complex process. A clay model is first set up. Then a wax lining is placed on this. The artist makes his sculpture on the wax. Another coating of clay with an opening at the bottom is laid over the wax. When the outer shell is dry and hard, a fire is lit around it so that the wax melts and flows out through it. Into this empty space is poured the molten metal. The outer layer is removed after it has cooled down. The resulting inner sculpture is finshed, smoothed and polished.

    Phad painting: king in his convoy. natural colour on paper.

    Phad painting originates in Rajasthan, India. Phad is a type of scroll painting. The term ‘phad’ refers to the length of cloth – a phad means a long length of cloth. These paintings are traditionally done on a long scroll, which is then cut to size. They usually depict local deities and their stories, or legends of rulers. These paintings are created using bright colours. The outlines of the paintings are first drawn in black and later filled with colour. Vibrant colours and bold lines, along with a two-dimensional treatment of figures, and the entire composition arranged in sections, are characteristic of these paintings. Rajasthan is mainly desert land, and is famous for its art, handicraft, miniature paintings and forts. These paintings were often carried from place to place, accompanied by traditional singers, who narrated the theme depicted on the scrolls. They were used as information and entertainment. This folk art seems to hold a perennial appeal and continues to remain predominantly popular. Can be bought as a set of two. This one is a traditional work, both in style and content. Size L 27cm x W 18cm.
