Mundane Description of the Ornament:

An original gouache artwork painted on both sides of a 3" dia ceramic ornament. It comes varnished with 1 coat of Krylon Kamar spray varnish and 2 coats of Liquitex matt varnish to ensure protection from sunlight over time. The ornament comes with a matching, handmade velvet silk lace, bought from Fringe and Rose, a small business based in LA, California. The artwork is double sided and can be hung either way.

An interesting glimpse into the Heritage:

Made from a natural fibre call Flax plant, Linen fabric mainly came to India from the harbor of Kochi in the southern region. Comfort and style came together in the form of Linen sarees and then colorful prints were introduced on them to make them even more enticing. 


Paisley is the name for mango motifs in the world of textile design. Printed patterns have a horde of floral and paisley designs with a simple zari (copper/gold metal) threaded line weaved into the borders.
