The Kite Workshop

The Kite Workshop

The Kite Workshop

This colorful miniature captured in a thick dark green frame rendered with light gold flower motifs, forms the background and has inlayed display of a variety of kites painted at an equal distance.

Kite flying is one of the best festive delights in India. These bright colored kites with their colorful threads paint a perfect picture in the sky especially during harvest festival and the Indian Independence Day. It is an expression of patriotism and also marks the beginning of a new season. Kite making, as depicted in the painting on this page has been an activity since ancient times.

Here, two women sitting in their comfort are making kites kept on low heighted stools with varied colors and styles and the man sitting on carpet, seems to be having a serious conversation regarding the threads (manja) with the other, who affirms to be the highest priority as depicted by his posture and personality. The two women wear long skirts and contrasting blouses with a transparent chunri each, and the two men wear long robes, with the shop owner having small gold motifs on it, belts tied on their waists and stylized turbans adorn their heads. Kites with different shapes and sizes hang all over and the ones stacked up on the ground with a variety of colored thread rolls, shows the curiosity of the makers to finish the kite making process as the concerned festival is approaching shortly.

Testimonials
Your books arrived in good order and I am very pleased.
Christine, the Netherlands
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
