Hues of Rajasthan


ARTEFACTS OF the past created with stylistic authenticity. That's The Heritage, A- 7, Anna Nagar East, for you.

This time round, the crafts shop has come up with a collection of oil paintings based on themes drawn from Rajasthani tribal life. Cherubic women with ethnic jewellery and colourful backdrop are typical elements in the paintings.

There are some murals too in earthy tones. Priced at Rs. 375 onwards, the murals reflect varied expressions. There are water fountains that have The Heritage's trademark terrabatik finish. Beautiful figurines — both religious and casual — mark the collection. As for the lampshades, they have innovative touches with 3-D effect and jewel tones.

For those interested in a fusion of form and function, there are beautiful centre and side tables — glass topped with exquisitely crafted terracotta bases. The display also includes abstract Ganesha paintings, Tanjore works, glass paintings, rosewood, sandalwood, brass and bronze artefacts and bamboo and wood wall panels. Custom made orders are also undertaken.

At an exhibition commencing today, coinciding with its eighth anniversary, The Heritage offers attractive discounts. For details, call 98400 70026/ 26191409.
