From our Heritage Collection - Exquisite Vintage Jali ( Mesh) wall hanging frame in vibrant colours carved out of local soft mango wood featuring a Jharoka style canopy frame within, adorned with a beautifully hand crafted brass idol of Goddess Meenakshi mounted on red raw silk.
Worshipped predominantly by people from the South of India, Goddess Meenakshi is one of the few Hindu female deities to have a major temple devoted to her - the far famed Meenakshi Amman Temple in Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India.
Artisans from Rajasthan are renowned for their skill of carving in soft mango wood and then hand painting them with local floral designs, motifs and vibrant colours using vegetable dyes displaying the colourful beauty and century old traditions of their state and legacy of the Moghul kings.
One can find such carvings or Jali work in most monuments, Jharokas, royal palaces in marble, stone and wood all across the state of Rajasthan, India.
