Rajasthan, as I already told to my overseas friend, is the largest state of India. It is one of the most beautiful states of India which attracts very large number of domestic and foreign tourists. It is culturally rich and has artistic and cultural traditions which reflects the ancient Indian way of life.

Here are few shots of decorative wooden item which I purchased few years back. The below photograph is of Rajasthani decorative wooden center table, which has painting on it.




Rajasthan is a shoppers' paradise, with beautiful goods found at low prices. Handicraft items like wooden furniture and handicrafts, carpets, and blue pottery are some of the things commonly found here.

Below is again a beautiful wooden letter box and key holder. I loved it so much that I could not resist to purchase it. :)



Complete shot of it. It also has a beautiful and colorful painting.

Another attraction is a jewelery box on which gem stone painting is done with natural colors. The box has painting of a woman doing 'shringar' (make-up)for her husband.


What was unusual about this painting is that it is made with real precious/semi precious gem stones like Amethyst, Red Jasper, Red Adventurine, Sodalite, Garnet, Yellow Agate and Cornelian Agate.



Colors are the life of artist...isn't it? And I am sooooo happy and blessed to be born and raised in this colorful world...:)
