Cyan Wedding Sherwani with All-Over Embroidered Beads

Cyan Wedding Sherwani with All-Over Embroidered Beads

You know half your wedding-day woes are gone the moment you stumble upon the right sherwani. The one you see on this page is a luxuriant number. From the pale aquamarine colour to the beadwork superimposed on the same, this is one buy you cannot go wrong with. While reds, browns, and golds make for more traditional wedding colours for the groom, this is indeed an unusual tint of blue that would make heads turn on the day of the pheras or at the ensuing reception.

A good sherwani is characterised by a highly characteristic fit and cut. It starts at a closely fitted collar, spreads out into broad well-defined shoulders, and descends into a long straight-fit shirt. The silhouette is distinctly masculine, almost regal. Zoom in on the sheer luxuriance of the beads that cover the surface area of this number. It would shimmer against the foundation blue as you motion, catching the eye of all who surround you.

The Beauteous Apsara, Muse Of The Gandharvas

The Beauteous Apsara, Muse Of The Gandharvas

An otherworldly creature dances in lush wilderness. She is possessed of youth and vigour and beauty, infused with a stance as wild as the verdure that surrounds her. The nrtya apsara that you see on this page is a muse of the gandharvas of Indraloka. The ample curves of her body are carved from wood and infused with a stance so lifelike, one can almost witness the motion of her dance.

Indeed she is the very image of beauty and art in motion. One arm she raises above her head, adjusting the jaunty bun on her head; with the other she holds a stylish handheld mirror up to her face in order to see the effect. One of her gorgeous legs is bent at the knee and raised mid-air, with her hips jutting deliciously out in the opposite direction. Blue floral shells conceal the curves on her torso and a skirt of layered silk her hips, as a sea of sashes and vines float about her.

The style of composition is in keeping with ancient South Indian temple architecture. Her toes graze a lotus pedestal, from either side of which emerges an aureole of wild overgrowth. Thick snake-like vines interspersed with bits of juicy fruit, on which birds of luxuriant plumage are feeding. The intricate latticework is an example of superfine craftsmanship. Like a ripe fruit caught in the flora, the beauteous apsara continues her dance, much to the pleasure of the inhabitants of Indraloka whose fortune it is to witness her.

Lord Kalantaka To The Rescue Of Sage Markandeya

Lord Kalantaka To The Rescue Of Sage Markandeya

The young Sage Markandeya is the object of Lord Shiva’s divine grace. Blessed to Sage Mrikandu as his only son and destined to live a mere sixteen years, he learnt the Mahamrityunjaya mantra (the mantra of the great conqueror of death, an allusion to none other than Lord Shiva Himself) just in time for the arrival of Lord Yama, the presider over death and the afterlife.

It is said that at that juncture between life and death, Lord Shiva arrived in His Kalantaka form to the rescue of Sage Markandeya. ‘Kala’ in Sanskrt stands for time and the inevitability of it, and ‘antaka’ means one who ends. The folk painting that you see on this page depicts the victory of Lord Kalantaka over Lord Yama. To the right is the dusky Lord Yama astride the ferocious grey bull of patalaloka (the netherworld). He is making straight for the Sage who, to the left of the painting, clings with fervent devotion to the Shivalingam. Lord Kalantaka rises above the Shivalingam and - in all the glory of His ashen-coloured chaturbhujadhari (four-armed) roopa (form) - He pierces Lord Yama with His trishool (trident) and defeats Him.

The backdrop is a powerful, complex network of vicious snakes and seductive vines, which make for an otherworldly allure. Zoom in on each aspect of the same to appreciate the skill and perfection with each it has been executed.

Handsome Apsara Feeds Her Parrot

Handsome Apsara Feeds Her Parrot

The muse of the celestial musicians the gandharvas, the apsara is a paragon of beauty and art in motion. The stone sculpture that you see on this page depicts the finest of her kind. Formed in the best proportions of womanhood, she is clad in a silk dhoti that clings to her youthful musculature and shringar fit for the queens of paraloka. With superb precision and lifelike detail, the medium has been sculpted to resemble fabric layered closely over skin.

The beauteous apsara stands under a shoot that curves barely above the bun on her head. The organic impressions on the same have been carved with considerable skill and attention to detail. An adorable parrot is perched on her delicate wrist, which she feeds with utmost care from a hand-carved bowl. She is standing with all the fluidity and grace of her lissome being, as she looks over the little head bobbing up and down over the bowl.
The beauty of the apsara is not only in form and face and figure, but in the being of her body and its language. From the alluring curve of her spine and her limbs to the composure of her superfine countenance, everything about her suggests poetry and depth and symmetry. Eyes widely drawn underneath her brow; a handsome nose descending onto a gracious mouth. The washed-out terracotta monotone and the blooming lotus of the pedestal add to the gathered, feminine ethos of the composition.

The Furtive Princess

The Furtive Princess

She has scarcely attained to womanhood. She runs around on the grounds of the palace of her father the King, mischievously keeping her handmaidens on tenterhooks in their never-ending search for her. She is bursting forth with life and fecundity, the beauty of her fulsome youth unbeknownst to her yet. In this oil painting, she is captured in a moment of stillness.

Something has caught the little princess by surprise. In one of the sombre corners of her home, she stands stock still and overhears her father discuss possible liaisons through her marriage. In her shyness, she draws her sheer dupatta over her bosom clad in a brick-coloured choli. Note the dilemma in her body language - the stance of her torso is as if to rush on in her playfulness, but she turns back a little, her head leaning in the direction of her father’s voice as he decides her future.

The fullness of her youth is set off by the ample gold and jewels on her person. A faint blush rises from the high of her cheeks to the roots of her black curls. Her heaving breasts are almost bursting through the silk of her choli. Her gaze is resting on a nearby lamp - an eerie glisten characterises those large, kohl-rimmed eyes.

Buff-Yellow Brocaded Lehenga with Floral Embroidered Choli and Crystal Studded Dupatta

Buff-Yellow Brocaded Lehenga with Floral Embroidered Choli and Crystal Studded Dupatta

There is no such thing as the perfect bridal lehenga. Each lehenga has its own personality, and whilst shopping for her trousseau every bride should focus on the key aspects that reflect hers. The first of those aspects is colour - the one you see on this page is a gracious gold superimposed with high-density brocade. This single hue dominates the colour palette of this ensemble, which is preferred by brides who are tired of the conventional reds, pinks, and oranges.


Then there is silhouette. This one cuts a regal one, given the volume of its flowing skirt and the understated fit of the matching gold choli. The choli is embroidered with a world of flower-shaped booties - note the luxuriant panel across the neckline and sleeves - that add to the bridal appeal of this number. Finally, the most statement-making aspect of this lehenga is the peach-coloured dupatta. Its silken texture adds to the silhouette. With matching brocade sewn on to the edges and crystals woven into the fabric, it is just the image of bridal glamour.

Leonine Temple Guards

Leonine Temple Guards

Nothing like a pair of stylised lions to add to your home decor. Unusual as they are, these sculptures depict the form of the leonine guard as could be found in ancient temples in the farther Northern reaches of the subcontinent. Their function is to greet visitors as they flank the entrance to the altar of a deity; alternatively, they could be positioned on either side of the deity within.

These lions are a fine example of devotional Indian handiwork. Fashioned from brass, their bodies are inlaid with richly coloured bits of resin indicative of regal adornment. Their faces are carved most delicately, with the kind of precision and attention to detail possible only for the finest of sculptors. A composure of wrath - mouths open, tongues lashing out - characterises the faces of the lions.

It is the wrathful expression that gives away the style of temple architecture these lions belong to. In addition to the same, there are the tiny protrusions on the tops of their heads, the impressions of wings on their brows and shoulders, and the serrations on their superbly carved ears. Zoom in on the realistic mane spreading in thick curls over their leonine shoulders. Finally, the lifelike flourish of their tails completes the sculpture.
