Engraved to fit into your living quarters April 3, 2008Posted by asianpixmen in Craft, Culture, India.
There are households that have elaborate screens decorating their halls and dining areas. From the cold, mystical, sometimes mist-covered land of Kashmir come these wooden, engraved screens.
They are the handiwork of factories that employ hundreds of skilled craftsmen who have honed their skills for generations. The normal material used for such screens are either rosewood or teak. The only problem is when dust has settled into the tiny crevices that are part of its elaborate patterns, you may want to clean it slowly and meticulously.
It is definitely not a chore for the impatient or the lazy. Certainly, it is beautiful to look at, and even better to own, but who’s going to clean it every fortnight. There goes that wonderful idea to buy one, unless you have five servants at your beck and call!
