NEW COLLECTION :: BUNDI

Wednesday, April 22, 2015


If you remember, my year started on a fantastic note. I travelled to the south of Rajasthan...on a road less travelled...
I visited a beautiful, mostly unexpolred BUNDI. I posted about it in January here. The city with blues houses, various lakes and beautiful, ancient palaces and huge forts, completely mesmerised me. The details on the pillars is amazing. Elephants that were symbols of prosperity are visible in all the artwork. This palace is built over a side of the hill on the top of which is the Taragarh Fort.
Bundi is the place of an authentic ”The Bundi School” of painting . The best wall paintings in the Bundi style are still available in the Chitrashala, Badal Mahal, Phool Mahal and Chandra Mahal. These paintings are displayed in excellent conditions, well preserved and truly fascinating to attract millions of visitors, but Bundi is still hidden from the tourist map. The Chitrashala (picture gallery) of the palace is total paisa wasool. It had some beautiful murals on its walls and ceiling. The rooms adjacent to the gallery are small but full of ornate walls, full of handcrafted mirror work.
Art Galley of Bundi Palace is a visual delight. This gallery is the part of a beautiful palace, known as Ummed Palace, built by Rao Ummed Singh. Many murals, wall paintings and artworks at its wall make it a must visit place. These paintings are mainly related to Hindu Mythological Stories (Especially stories related to Lord Krishna), court proceedings, love stories, musical melodies and general scenes of recreational fights as well as wars. These paintings are highly influenced by Mughal and Mewar style of Art. The color scheme consists of green background, on which men and women are printed with white color, while red, blue, black and yellow colors are used for traditional dresses. 

This place, especially the Chitrashala, had a strong imapct on me. When i came back, i started to work on a brand new collection based on the influences. I called it, but obviously, The BUNDI Collection. :)

I have been dying to introduce you all to my new collection. Have a dekho!!
